Rhizome hosted their annual benefit to honor founder Mark Tribe last night at the New Museum's sky room. This organization dedicates its time to support the creation, presentation and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology, art, and culture. A wonderful feature to their website is the ArtBase, a place where members can distribute their artwork in a kind of online e-portfolio and receive feedback from others artists.
