Rhizome, the influential digital art and technology nonprofit, is seeking an Executive Director. It is a unique opportunity for a dynamic leader to engage a new generation of artists and technologists, shaping the future of Rhizome and digital culture at large in a moment of intense public interest in the field. Candidates from groups underrepresented in art & technology are particularly encouraged to apply.

Rhizome champions born-digital art and culture through commissions, exhibitions, scholarship, and digital preservation. Founded in 1996 by artist Mark Tribe as a listserve including some of the first artists to work online, Rhizome has played an integral role in the history of contemporary art engaged with digital technologies and the internet. Recent milestones include Net Art Anthology, a compilation of 100 works that define internet art as a diverse field of practice; the ArtBase, an archive of more that 2,500 works of new media art stewarded by Rhizome’s digital preservation program; and the Seven on Seven conference, which brings leading artists together with tech-world luminaries to create new work together, such as the first ever NFT artwork in 2014.

Since 2003, Rhizome has been an affiliate in residence at the New Museum in New York City. Founded in 1977, the New Museum is a leading destination for new art and new ideas. Together, New Museum, Rhizome, and NEW INC, the first museum-led incubator founded by New Museum in 2014, explore the future of contemporary art and technology.

Please see the full invitation for details.
