The end of UbuWeb
From the editors at UbuWeb:
UbuWeb | 1996-2005
The UbuWeb Project -- a decade-long experiment in radical distribution of avant-garde materials -- has finished. Founded in 1996, the project has been a success beyond anyone's wildest expectations. As of Spring, 2005, it averaged over 10,000 visitors daily and hosts nearly a terabyte of artworks in all media by over 500 artists.
The site will be donated to a university shortly, where it will be archived intact for posterity. Please note that the site will no longer be updated. A URL linking to the archive will be posted on this page.
The editors wish to thank you for supporting this experiment and, as a result, may a thousand flowers bloom in its wake.
