FreeWilliamsburg recently posted about the 2010 call for new commissions by Rhizome, the art and technology website, organization, etc.
The goal of the Rhizome Commissions Program is to support emerging artists by providing grants 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. Rhizome defines emerging artist as artists who exhibit great potential yet are not fully recognized within their field. 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.
We are now accepting applications. The deadline for submission is on midnight April 2, 2009.
In addition to alerting our attention to this excellent opportunity, FreeWilliamsburg also linked to this excellent article about the excellent Lucky Dragons, who were also recently featured here.
