Founded in 1996 as an intimate email list subscribed to by some of the first artists to work online and, eleven years later, a thriving nonprofit, Rhizome has played an integral role in the history, definition and growth of art engaged with the Internet and networked technologies. Our website is a dynamic, interactive platform, rich in historical resources and updated continually with new art and commentary by a vast community. Our programs, realized both on and offline, support art creation, presentation, preservation and interpretation; they include exhibitions & events, commissioning, daily art news and in-depth criticism, and the maintenance of a singularly comprehensive digital art archive.

Rhizome affiliated with the New Museum in 2003, when the institutions identified a shared commitment to emerging art and ideas.
