The Download (2011-2013) shared a new artwork every month for free download via Rhizome.org. Part curatorial platform, part incentive to budding digital art collectors, the Download highlights new works and encourages display at home-on any screen, computer, or suitable device.
UPDATE: The Download has been reincarnated by curator Paul Soulellis
