  • Deadline:
    May 15, 2013, midnight
  • Location:
    Rhizome at the New Museum, 235 Bowery, New York, New York, 10002, US

This year, Rhizome places a focus on promoting emerging artists based in New York City. Grants will not be restricted to New York based artists, but made a priority. Rhizome will award up to six grants for the creation of new works of digital and new media art. Rhizome Commissions awards generally range from $1,000 to $5,000. This cycle, we also have a specific focus on one project that addresses social issues and/or promotes individual advancement through education or participation.

Five grants will be determined by a jury of experts in the field: Massimiliano Gioni, Associate Director and Director of Exhibitions at the New Museum and Artistic Director of the 55th Venice Biennale; Laurie Anderson, noted experimental performance artist and musician; Renny Gleeson, Global Director at Wieden + Kennedy; and Zoë Salditch, Rhizome's Program Director.

One grant will be determined by Rhizome's membership through an open voting system.
