Connecting art & technology at the New Museum of Contemporary Art
Founded in 1996 as an intimate email list, Rhizome is now a thriving nonprofit dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology. Through open platforms for exchange and collaboration, this website serves to encourage and expand the communities around these practices. Rhizome's programs, many of which happen online, include commissions, exhibitions, events, discussion, archives and portfolios. They support artists working at the furthest reaches of technological experimentation as well as those responding to the broader aesthetic and political implications of new tools and media. Rhizome's organizational voice draws attention to artists, their work, their perspectives and the complex interrelationships between technology, art and culture.
