Since 2005 The Digital Matrix Commissions Program has served as a platform for artists working on web-based technology and interactive projects, providing funding to artists with a strong background and working practice in digital art. Using their technical expertise and artistic skills, they have the potential and vision to create innovative online and/or interactive projects focusing on the themes of survival and resistance, migration and race and gender politics.
Digital Matrix Commissions (2005-2006) are on view and accessible through our website (see links on right).
New commissions will invite artists to submit proposals for web-based and interactive projects that will be presented on our website www.bronxarts.org and at our Project Room Space at Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos.
Previous commissions have explored how artists have responded to “immigration/migration” as it relates to survival, resistance, and gentrification, and its effects, in particular in a South Bronx context.
