<nettime-ann> RHIZOME NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS TO 2010 COMMISSIONS CYCLE


.
Rhizome is pleased to announce that the 2010 Commissions cycle is now
open. Founded in 2001, the Rhizome Commissions Program is designed to
support emerging artists with financial and institutional resources.
In the seventh year of funding for the Program, Rhizome will award
grants, with amounts ranging from $1000 to $5000, for the creation of
significant works of new media art. By new media art, we mean projects
that creatively engage new and networked technologies to works that
reflect on the impact of these tools and media in a variety of forms.
Commissioned works can take the final form of online works,
performance, video, installation or sound art. Projects can be made
for the context of the gallery, the public, the web or networked
devices. Artists who receive a commission will also be invited to
speak at Rhizome's affiliate, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, and
to archive their work in the ArtBase, a comprehensive online art
collection.

Applications will be accepted until midnight April 2, 2009.
To apply and for more information: http://www.rhizome.org/commissions

In the 2010 cycle, Rhizome will award nine grants total. Seven of
these will be selected by a jury and  two will be determined by
Rhizome's membership through an open vote. Reflective of Rhizome's
commitment to openness and community, this unique process encourages
dialogue among artists and participants and provides members with the
opportunity to survey the current field of practice.

Member voting will begin on April 6th.
Information on Rhizome membership is here:

The Rhizome Commissions program is supported, in part, by funds from
the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Jerome Foundation,
the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State
Council on the Arts, a state agency, and the Rockefeller Foundation's
NYC Cultural Innovation Fund. Additional support is provided by
generous individuals and Rhizome Members.
