    Established in 1996 to champion the field of net art, Rhizome continues to fund and present new artwork, foster critical discussion, and ensure ongoing access to digital culture.

    Last year, Rhizome moved its offices to New Inc., the first museum-led incubator and an initiative of our affiliate, the New Museum. In the coming year we look forward to contributing to its critical conversations about art, tech, design and entrepreneurship, engaging directly with its members—last year, we gained a contributing editor from its ranks—and developing our own projects, such as new tools for digital preservation, in the context.

    The website’s typography features three different sans-serifs. The servatile Aften Screen is paired with the brutalist Proto Grotesk. In several sections, this mix is extended by the ubiquituous Arial. The logo uses caps from Gza, with a modified ‘O’.

    Unfortunately, the Aften Italic webfont is browser-italicized again.

    Arial in all caps, in purple, with an unrefined underline treatment that references the non-aesthetics of browser defaults.
