The List Visual Arts Center is a creative laboratory that provides artists with a space to freely experiment and push existing boundaries.
As the contemporary art museum at MIT, the List Center has three gallery spaces where curators present a dynamic program of six to nine contemporary exhibitions annually. Typically, the List Center offers an artist their first museum solo presentation. Exhibitions are accompanied by a broad range of educational programs for the public and the MIT community, special events, and scholarly publications.
The galleries and all programs are free and open to the public.

The MIT Indigenous Peoples Advocacy Committee (IPAC) in part with MIT’s American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), Native American Student Association (NASA) and other Indigenous MIT students/alumni have developed the following land acknowledgement statement.
“MIT acknowledges Indigenous Peoples as the traditional stewards of the land, and the enduring relationship that exists between them and their traditional territories. The land on which we sit is the traditional unceded territory of the Wampanoag Nation. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced occupation of their territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse indigenous people connected to this land on which we gather from time immemorial.”
