About ArtBots

ArtBots is an international art exhibition for robotic art and art-making robots. For each show, we publish an open call for submissions, inviting artists from around the world to send us information about their work. We have no fixed definition of what qualifies for the show; if you think it's a robot and you think it's art, we encourage you to submit. The final list of participants is a mix of works selected from the open call submissions and additional artists invited by the ArtBots curators.

Every year the show is a bit different; the location changes and ArtBots director Douglas Repetto invites a new set of humans to co-curate the show with him. We hope that by changing the specifics of the show each year we can keep it accessible to a diverse range of people, works, and ideas.

Please see the ArtBots Archive for info on the shows we have produced.
