We want to know what the relationship between the human and the machine means to you. For our latest open call, we're inviting Tate Collective to respond to the themes of Artificial Intelligence and cyborg theory.

These themes are explored in the work of Shawanda Corbett. Shawanda’s current Art Now show is the inspiration for our next Late at Tate Britain. At the event, we will showcase a curated selection of submissions to the open call.

The idea of the human and the machine is a theme that runs throughout the Art Now display. Technology plays a key role in most of our daily lives. From unlocking your phone using Face ID and personalised social media feeds, to a simple Google search, artificial Intelligence is all around us. But what impact does this have on the future? Is the feeling positive or negative? How would you describe the relationship between humans and machines?

Get Involved

We want your artwork exploring the relationship between the human and machine.

You can be as creative as you like with your response. It could be photography, digital collage, painting, sculpture, poem or anything else. You can submit existing works or create something new in response to the brief. The only catch is that we need to be able to present it digitally in a slideshow, so all works must be submitted as a digital image.

A curated selection of works will be showcased as part of a digital display at Tate Britain during the Late at Tate Britain on Friday 2 September.

To inspire you, take a look at some Tate collection works which explore the relationship between the human and the machine.
