ACT Community Quote:

“The scientist may be an extra brain to the artist, and the engineer may be an extra arm to the artist, [but] the artist can be an extra eye to the scientist and engineer.” — Otto Piene, CAVS Director 1974-1994

 

The Cube is the heart of the Program in Art, Culture and Technology (ACT). It is the studio home of our students, a place for experimentation, dialogue, and production. It is a classroom and a performance and presentation space where ACT’s integrated approach to pedagogy, public events programming, exhibitions, and publications is most evident. The Cube traverses disciplines, formats, practices, and worlds. It is in the Cube that ACT builds a community of artist-thinkers who explore art’s complex relationship to culture and technology.

During the summer, ACT’s artists become global travelers, exploring ways to push the public discourse in their singular way. Where in the world is ACT, and what are ACT artist-thinkers experiencing, discovering, and creating? Find out below by clicking on “Present.”
