The Rhizome Commissions Program makes financial support available to artists for the creation of original works of Internet-based art. In 25, Rhizome awarded eleven grants to an international group of artists. All the works took the Internet as their primary vehicle for exhibition; several also extended off the web as sculpture, video or installation. This evening celebrated eleven projects were awarded grants for the 25-26 cycle with a one-night installation and presentations by several of the commissioned artists.
