What is ARTS.nano?

ARTS.nano is a platform for exploring, celebrating, and inspiring creativity and artistic collaboration. “Creativity is the thread that connects artists, scientists, and engineers,” says Vladimir Bulović, the Fariborz Maseeh (1990) Chair in Emerging Technology and the founding faculty director of MIT.nano. “ARTS.nano is a natural extension of our mission to push the frontiers of knowledge, discovery, and innovation.”

ARTS.nano offers MIT.nano's galleries, public spaces, and unique toolsets as an exciting addition to the network of art-focused centers and programs at MIT. Partnering with Arts at MIT and the MIT Center for Art, Science, and Technology (CAST), as well as other established arts programs at MIT, ARTS.nano will pair visiting artists with MIT faculty and students to explore the intersection of art, science, and technology—with a focus on using the tools of MIT.nano to spur new creations powered by cutting-edge research and technologies.

The initiative will also organize exhibitions from inside and outside the MIT community, help organize symposia, and serve as a hub for connections between artistic practice and the frontiers of advanced materials, computing, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and other disciplines.
