The exhibition A wounded matrix. Cracks in artificial creativity, organised by the platform einaidea in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Valencia, brings together artists, designers and artistic research professionals to reflect upon the collaboration between human creative agents and neural networks. A wounded matrix addresses the debate on the growing automation of creative processes from the point of view of its cracks and grey spaces, its impossibilities and limits, paradoxes and leaks.

A wounded matrix. Cracks in artificial creativity includes works by artists Itziar Barrio, Sarah Derat, Laia Estruch, John Menick, Katarina Petrović and Marc Vives, who are joined by research elements carried out by the curatorial and design team of the project: Manuel Cirauqui, curator and director of einaidea; Rosa Lleó, co-curator of the project; Mireia Molina Costa, Carmen Montiel and Alexandre Viladrich, researchers and designers associated with einaidea. The research and development process of A Wounded Matrix has also counted with the participation of researchers, artists and designers such as Elena Bartomeu, Erick Beltrán, Jo Milne, Lluís Nacenta, and Pep Vidal.

The exhibition has been produced by the Area of Art, Science, Technology and Society of the Polytechnic University of Valencia in collaboration with Fundació EINA, Barcelona, and will take place at n-1 of the Central Library of the Vera Campus of UPV.
