We are Emerson College’s platform for showcasing contemporary visual art. Our focus is on presenting living artists, their ideas, experiments, and creative practices in the areas of media art, performance art, and emergent technologies, while critically examining these works in their social context. Our in-depth engagement with the temporary exhibitions and related public programming is based on the principle that artistic practice is an intellectual activity and works of art are a form of knowledge production.
