Historical note

The Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT) program at MIT is an academic program and center of critical art practice, intelligence and discourse within the School of Architecture and Plannin. ACT began with the combining of the Visual Arts Program and the Center for Advanced Visual Studies in 2009. In December of 2009, the combined group was renamed the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT). A celebration of the new program was held on April 15, 2010 with exhibitions, conversations, and performances. In 2021, ACT was rebranded as the Art, Culture, and Technology program at MIT.
