ACTA video of Ashdown House’s role in history is an example of contemporary artists’ work at MIT. Video, architecture, photography, installations, culture, and curation are all tools in play. The website for the MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT), a department comprised of the former MIT Visual Arts Program and the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, offers new visions of this art-making in action.

Check out department news and learn about projects such as AR – Artistic Research, the yearlong collaboration with the Siemens Stiftung of Munich that focused on how art research intersects with science and the differences between the two methodologies. Also see recent exhibitions news for alumni and faculty.

Browse the alumni page for artists’ links:

  • See work by Ben Wood SM ′07, a British-born artist working in animation, video, and stereo 3-D for large-scale projection. His work includes an hour-long video on Ashdown House, MIT’s first graduate dorm and the second oldest grad dorm in the U.S., focusing on the impact its past residents have had on shaping the 20th century.
  • See short videos by Jin Jung SM ′o9 on projects including “a play: Between Me and You” at a Boston-area gallery that focused on the gallery’s columns and their transformation.
