In celebration of their respective ten-year anniversaries, Turbulence and Rhizome collaborated with Upgrade! New York to present an exhibition of works they commissioned of exhibited over the course of their histories. From re-purposed commercial software tohomegrown digital knitting applications and works that offer alternative constructions of identity and nationality, D.I.Y. or Die presents a cross-section of Internet-based art that, much like punkand grassroots activism has the urgency and invention required tochange existing standards of art practice.
D.I.Y. or Die is currently installed at Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO), a not-for-profit arts organization presenting work by Oklahoma artists, including visual art, poetry, theater, and film and video.
This exhibition was part of Rhizome's Tenth Anniversary Festival events.
