Seven on Seven is a major new initiative that will pair seven leading artists with seven game-changing technologists in teams of two and challenge them to develop something new –be it an application, social media, artwork, product, or whatever they imagine– over the course of a single day. The seven teams will unveil their ideas at a one-day conference at the New Museum on April 17th, 2010.

The first edition of an annually occurring event, Seven on Seven will facilitate the creation of influential new works, and assemble an intimate audience to discuss and evaluate their ideas. Recalling the groundbreaking 1966 event 9 Evenings, in which dancers, visual artists and musicians were paired with engineers and scientists, Seven on Seven is aimed at enriching all involved, and putting forth important, new projects that tie to Rhizomeʼs mission of openness and innovation in art.

Conference attendance includes a day-long session where the seven teams will unveil their ideas, followed by a cocktail reception in the New Museum Skyroom. Seven on Seven participants follow.

  • Jeff Hammerbacher (Accel Ventures/ Facebook)
  • David Karp (founder of Tumblr)
  • Andrew Kortina (, Venmo)
