Liverpool Biennial and FACT
, Foundation for Art and Creative Technology are delighted to announce a new partnership with Rhizome
, a New Museum affiliate in New York City.
Rhizome at the New Museum is dedicated to the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology. Through open platforms for exchange and collaboration, their website serves to encourage and expand the communities around these practices.
As part of a new collaboration between FACT and Liverpool Biennial, Rhizome.org will host a weekly-curated online programme throughout the duration of Liverpool Biennial 2012.
Each week, an internationally renowned artist will be invited to respond to the theme of hospitality and to be ‘hosted’ in Rhizome’s virtual space – presenting a hyper-linked media programme that explores cross currents in contemporary media culture.
Confirmed artists include: Jemima Wyman, Judith Barry, Kristin Lucas
Jennifer Chan, Anahita Razmi. Ming Wong, Queer Technologies, Angelo Plessas, and Adham Faramawy.
The programme is also highlighted through public programmes hosted at FACT during the Biennial period.
The Programme is curated by Omar Kholeif (FACT) and Joanne McNeil (Rhizome at the New Museum).
Liverpool Biennial 2012 runs from 15 September - 25 November.
