On May 28th, Rhizome will celebrate its annual benefit at the New Museum. Rhizome’s 2009 Benefit will celebrate art engaged with new technology through an evening packed with music, performance and art. Rhizome will honor two individuals who have made a profound impact on art and culture: Dara Birnbaum, pioneering video artist whose out of the box practices speak to the radical spirit of internet art and Caterina Fake, whose application Flickr helped shape the contemporary web and online community. During the evening, there will be a silent auction, featuring objects and unique experiences, live music by Glasser and Tanlines, as well as a performance by artist Kevin Bewersdorf. The Rhizome 50,000 Dollar Webpage will also be on display.
