Abstract

The intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and art heralds a transformative phase in the evolution of creative expression, offering unprecedented possibilities and raising profound ethical questions. As AI-driven tools begin to occupy a prominent position in the art world, from generative visual artworks to music composition, critical concerns surrounding authorship, authenticity, cultural sensitivity, economic impacts, and audience manipulation emerge. This article delves into the multifaceted ethical landscape of AI’s application to art, exploring the tension between technological advancement and traditional notions of artistic value and integrity. Through various case studies, such as the ethical conundrums posed by DeepFakes in visual arts and AI-driven restorations of historic artworks, we scrutinize the broader implications for artists, audiences, and the art market. Conclusively, we reflect on the balance between innovation and ethical artistic practice, emphasizing the need for interdisciplinary discourse to navigate this nascent domain.
