Founded in 1996 as a leading organization for digital art, Rhizome continues to break new ground through presenting and supporting emerging art forms that engage new technologies. On May 15, the Rhizome Benefit will celebrate the organization's singular mission with a night of performance and live music, featuring Shana Moulton, High Places, and MEN, and will honor two individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the field of art and technology: Lynn Hershman Leeson, pioneering artist, and Joshua Shachter, influential founder of the web application, del.icio.us. A special silent Benefit auction will offer works by a group of exciting artists.
All event proceeds go towards Rhizome's programs, including commissions, exhibitions & events, criticism, and resources, such as their active website which serves as a connecting point for the artists, curators and community that is dynamically moving this field forward.
