The Program in Art, Culture + Technology is focused on art as a research practice, developing methods for critical design investigation and experimentation, as well as models of collaboration in cultural engagement.

Established in 2010, the program is the result of a merger between the Visual Arts Program, an academic unit begun in 1989 to offer graduate and undergraduate classes, and the Center for Advanced Visual Studies, a research program in visual arts for artists, engineers and scientists, established in 1967.

Based on a strong belief in the social role of art and in artistic leadership as a force for critical reflection, the program explores the role of art in society through performance, sound and video, photography and design, as well as through experimental media and new genres.
