AI Breathes New Life into Dvořák's Legacy: Premiere of An Astonishing Blend of Technology, Art, and History


PRAGUE, Czech Republic, Sept. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the last week, Prague’s enchanting Old Town has been home to the world premiere of “Dvořák Dreams,” a new, large-format AI data sculpture by internationally renowned artist Refik Anadol, with support from Allwyn, a leading multinational lottery operator, part of the investment and innovation group KKCG.

Since September 8th, the visually spectacular piece – titled DVOŘÁK DREAMS – has been installed in front of the historic Rudolfinum concert hall, a remarkable addition to the annual classical music festival Dvořák Prague. The captivating artwork has been open to festivalgoers and the general public alike, attracting tens of thousands of spectators since it was unveiled.

Anadol's creation reimagines Antonín Dvořák’s life and music in a digital format, using the latest in machine learning and AI to bring the legendary composer's timeless legacy into the contemporary world.

Plans are in development for the spectacular installation to be shown elsewhere internationally. The work is divided into four chapters using different data sets: portraits of the composer, images of nature that inspired him, stills of cities where he lived, such as Prague and New York, and 54 hours of Dvořák's music compositions. Karel Komárek, co-founder of the Dvořák Prague Festival, and patron of the 0xCollection, who has played an instrumental role in the preservation of Dvořák’s cultural import, helped secure a wealth of primary source material that was used.

For nearly a year, Anadol and his team meticulously trained his signature algorithms, immersing them in original data, music, and records from throughout Dvořák’s life, totaling over one million data points sourced from within the Czech Republic and abroad.

Speaking at the launch, the artist delved into the thinking behind this remarkable piece. Anadol explained: “It was almost 7 years ago that I started working with AI: the question was if a machine can learn, can it dream? Can it hallucinate? Because it’s really more inspiring to think about a machine as a dream machine… Whenever we think about these dreams and hallucinations and different cognitive skills, we can start thinking about things like chance, control – and artmaking itself.”

The installation was commissioned and developed as part of the 0xCollection’s contribution to Dvořák Prague 2023 – with support from Allwyn – and attempts to honor cultural pasts in the present through art and technology.

Elle Anastasiou, Director of the 0xCollection, said: “The 0xCollection is a new initiative dedicated to preserving and developing digital life from the present for the future. For our first public display, we decided to install Dvořák Dreams by Refik Anadol to honor a cultural past integral to the Czech Republic, where we’re doing our first exhibition programming. We are excited at the possibility of bringing it to other cities, including in the US, where Dvořák created some of his most frequently performed works.”

The Dvořák Dreams installation’s premiere is now over, and the 0xCollection’s debut exhibition, “Synesthetic Immersion,” featuring eight international artists in the KKCG Arts Space at Bořislavka, Prague, runs until October 16th, 2023. Visitors to Synesthetic Immersion are invited to challenge their expectations of what art should be and, instead, question what art can be - both now and in the future.
