The Week Ahead: We'll Miss You Zoë Salditch Edition

The Reanimator Lab and community participants, Rhizome logo made at IDEAS CITY (2013).

This week, there are many deadlines that are relevant to the Rhizome community. You can submit your work to VIDA 15.0, or to Transmediale, or to the Celeste Prize. Someone out there is looking for videos made during the last Manhattanhenge, and someone else wants self-portraits made using a cameraphone and a mirror. Here at Rhizome, we also have an important deadline: today is the last day to apply for the post of Community Manager and Program Administrator at Rhizome. Which means, sadly, that Zoë Salditch is moving on to pastures new.

While at Rhizome, Zoë curated The Download, which offered artworks for users to download and experience on their own computer. She fostered the Tumblr Internet Art Grant, and she organized events ranging from New Silent Series talks and panels to a workshop hosted by The Reanimator Lab where visitors could make hand-drawn animated GIFs, like the Rhizome logo shown above. She leaves quite a legacy, and we can't wait to see what she does next.

Now, without further ado, here are selected events, exhibitions and deadlines this week, all culled from Rhizome Announce.
