Fall 2024 Student Response Exhibition Call for Entries


ARTificial Intelligence

A Student Response Exhibition


In this ninth juried Student Response Exhibition (SRE), Miami University students are called upon to creatively respond to a theme - Artificial Intelligence (AI). This Fall 2024 SRE, will be on display in conjunction with Miami University's FOCUS theme of Artificial Intelligence led by the Department of ETBD (Emerging Technology in Business and Design).

Students are asked to creatively reflect and respond to the theme of AI. This exhibition is intended to elicit responses that illustrate how creative expression can be used to observe, understand, represent, and draw attention to the growing AI field. Artificial Intelligence offers many possibilities in this ever-changing world in which technology and computers play a vital role in almost all we do. It has also become a controversial topic for many, including artists, as it has blurred the lines between what is real and what is fabricated, what is original and what has been appropriated. Interpretations are subject to the student's personal perspective, major/minor, year of study, culture, age, and experiences.

As a juried exhibition, all works will be selected through a formal process by a committee. Three works in the exhibition will receive cash awards based on votes cast by visitors to the exhibition. Winners will be announced at a special reception on Wednesday, November 13, 2024, during a public awards ceremony. ARTificial Intelligence will be on display at the Richard and Carole Cocks Art Museum, August 27–December 14, 2024.


Participants are permitted to submit up to three (3) works for the juried process in developing the final selection of creative works to be displayed in the exhibition. Participants can submit paintings, photographs, sculpture, prints, music, film/videos, poetry, jewelry, digital rendering, computer interactives, or other forms of artistic expression. Only individual artist submissions are eligible.

This completed form must be submitted no later than Monday, April 1, 2024. Be sure to note any specific installation information in the "Additional Information" field, such as proximity to electrical outlet, pedestal/display case, etc. Provide specific explanation of medium (e.g, Lithograph on paper, Oil on canvas, Bronze, Mixed media on paper, etc.) for the jurors to have the best understanding of your work, and for accuracy of information used in the production of the object labels, should your work be selected for inclusion in the exhibition. Images must be uploaded using this Submission Form. Digital images of your submitted works for the selection process must be 300 dpi and at least 4x6 inches (no larger than 8x10 inches).
