MIT Museum Studio and Compton Gallery
The MIT Museum Studio and Compton Gallery fosters collaboration between experimental museum practice and MIT research and education.
Located at the center of the MIT campus, the facility features a teaching workshop connected to a glass-front gallery, visible from MIT’s Infinite Corridor. Faculty, researchers and students participate in innovative courses and research projects that produce experimental exhibitions for MIT and visiting audiences. Perception is a core interest of the Studio community, bridging art and science, human and computational approaches in projects that contribute to the experiential learning environment of the MIT Museum.
