Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies

Opening February 15, 2018

To mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS), the MIT Museum plans an historical overview through selected works by CAVS research fellows, students and professors.   

CAVS was a bold experiment connecting artists with forefronts of science and engineering. New artistic media and methods, as well as scales of expression for expanding audiences were pioneered at CAVS through the art-driven, interdisciplinary collaborations that became its hallmark.

The Museum’s exhibition will include art installations at multiple sites within the Museum and in its Compton Gallery. Holograms, light art, and inflatable sculptures will reflect the wide range of CAVS artistic explorations and achievements that changed the social standards of art.
