“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”Andy Warhol

Many professionals are worried about the risk associated with advances in generative AI like ChatGPT. Predictions have been made about who and what will be rendered obsolete first, as though people living in 2023 are the first ever to face a challenge from new technology.

This summer, the Tate Modern in London is running an exhibition called “Capturing the Moment: A Journey Through Painting and Photography.” It considers the rise of photography, first as a technology and then as a fine art, and how it affected painters working at the time, individuals such as Pablo Picasso, Edvard Munch, Gustav Klimpt, and Salvador Dali.

In this week’s episode of Dial P for Procurement, Kelly Barner compares the rise of photography 100 years ago with the present journey to understand generative AI:

  • How photography was viewed at the time, and how it developed into a fine art
  • Ways painters were impacted by improvements in (and acceptance of) photography as a technology and a creative medium
  • Reactions from critics and consumers – and what we can learn from their response today
