Digital art is disappearing daily. The creations of a software-driven, networked society are at constant risk of loss due to obsolescence, censorship, and lack of institutional support. Rhizome has done groundbreaking work on this problem, developing and offering tools, approaches, and infrastructure that support ongoing access to legacy digital art from our archives and from partner institutions. In 2024, this work will be the foundation for a major public program: Artbase Anthologies, a series of presentations of digital artworks that offer transformative experiences and an equitable historical accounting of the field. Developed through partnerships and collaborations, the series will feature curated presentations of born-digital works from the 1980s to today; prospective projects include an online exhibition of works made with P5.JS (in partnership with Processing Foundation), a survey of selected works by Auriea Harvey (in partnership with Museum of the Moving Image), and CyberPowWow, a Nation to Nation project led by Skawennati. Through these and other projects, we will deepen and broaden the public understanding of digital art, and show it to have a history that is as rich and diverse as culture itself. Here’s how you can help! Remember, donations are 100% tax-deductible, and will be matched up to $25,000.

A generation's art is disappearing. That's a problem on its own, but this work also proves that another digital reality is possible. http://www.netart.today/
