Rhizome Commissions Program
Founded in 2001, the Rhizome Commissions Program makes financial support available to emerging artists for the creation of original works of Internet-based art. Commissions are awarded annually by jury and by Rhizome's membership through an open member vote.
Rhizome considers emerging artists to be those whose work and previous accomplishments demonstrate significant potential and yet are under-recognized in the broader art field. The Commissions program is designed to support these artists with an award and also through the promotion, exhibition and preservation of their work. All commissioned works are exhibited on Rhizome.org and at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as preserved in the ArtBase.
Our next deadline for applications is April 1, 2008. We will begin accepting applications in February 2008. Please check back here for more information.
