It is with tremendous excitement that Rhizome launches our Tenth
Anniversary Festival of Art & Technology, this week. We've developed a
seven-month season of diverse programs, in partnership with some fantastic
organizations committed to supporting new media art.
You can check out the Festival, here:
Though this Festival is really about looking ahead, this is a good moment
to reflect and say thanks. We're proud of what Rhizome's done and become,
in the last ten years. The organization has grown from a mailing list to
an active membership organization serving a wide audience with multiple
programs. We have our community, especially our members, to thank for
Speaking of community, we also want to encourage you to participate in
Keylines, the Festival's collaborative writing project in which seed posts
on the topics of new media histories & genres, feminism, the environment,
politics, communities, and innovation have already been planted. We hope
you'll help these lines of discussion grow...
Other Festival highlights include Time Shares, a series of online
exhibitions co-presented with the New Museum of Contemporary Art to
emphasize our ongoing commitment to internet-based art, and a number of
offline exhibitions, performances, panel discussions, book launches, and
A big thank-you to all the artists, writers, venues, and sponsors who've
leant their support to the Festival.
We'll be sending out individual announcements about programs as they come
up on the calendar.
