Commissions is now open!
This year, Rhizome will commission ten international emerging artists
to create original works of new media art, with grant awards ranging
from $1,000 to $5000. Projects can can manifest for a variety of
contexts, including the web, mobile devices, the gallery or public
settings. Grant awards can be applied to any stage of the project.

through an open vote. The majority will be decided by a jury
consisting of Lauren Cornell, executive director of Rhizome, Tina
Kukelski, Associate Curator of the Carnegie International 2003;
Candice Madey, founder of On Stellar Rays gallery; and, critic and
curator Domenico Quaranta.
