Artist Mark Tribe

"We tried to make our practices the best they could be based on a lot of firsthand knowledge on the field, the artists, and their works. I know what Rhizome does has evolved a lot since then. What Rhizome does has been informed by what others do. I think there is also a desire to create consilience and congruity between and among different preservers and archivists."

Mark Tribe is an artist whose work explores the intersection of media technology and politics. His photographs, installations, videos, and performances are exhibited widely, including recent solo projects at Momenta Art in New York, the San Diego Museum of Art, G-MK in Zagreb, and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions. Tribe is the author of two books, The Port Huron Project: Reenactments of New Left Protest Speeches (Charta, 2010) and New Media Art (Taschen, 2006), and numerous articles. He is Chair of the MFA Fine Arts Department at School of Visual Arts in New York City. In 1996, Tribe founded Rhizome, an organization that supports the creation, presentation, preservation, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology.
