UArts Libraries now subscribes to Rhizome.org!
What is Rhizome?
Rhizome is dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology. Through open platforms for exchange and collaboration, our website serves to encourage and expand the communities around these practices. Our programs, many of which happen online, include commissions, exhibitions, events, discussion, archives and portfolios. We support artists working at the furthest reaches of technological experimentation as well as those responding to the broader aesthetic and political implications of new tools and media. Our organizational voice draws attention to artists, their work, their perspectives and the complex interrelationships between technology, art and culture.
-Mission Statement, Rhizome.org
Focusing on works of art in new media, this resource has been addressing questions of access and preservation since 1999. Through the development of features such as online collections, user portfolios, and member exhibition curation, it has built a vibrant online community.
