Special Projects

  1. 2018-2019 Annual Report

    The List Center is pleased to publish our 2018-2019 Annual Report.  Over the last year the Center has continued to grow and expand its programming.  Learn more about last year’s exhibitions, public events, and our impact on the MIT and local arts community.

  2. Feminist Art Coalition

    Working collectively, various art museums and nonprofit institutions from across the United States the Feminist Art Coalition will present a series of concurrent events—including commissions, exhibitions, performances, talks, and symposia—over the course of three months (September–November) in the fall of 2020, during the run-up to the next presidential election. This strategic endeavor takes feminist thought and practice as its point of departure and considers art as a catalyst for discourse and civic engagement. The List Center is pleased to participate in this critically important initiative by presenting an exhibition featuring the work of Dorothy Iannone in October 2020.

  3. Art Across Campus: Public Art and the Permanent Collection at MIT

    This off-site exhibition at MIT’s Stratton Student Center features works on paper by Jennifer Bartlett, Antony Gormley, Dan Graham, Sarah Sze, and Lawrence Weiner, as well as preparatory drawings and sketches by Theodore Roszak and Gary Wiley. Each of these artists  are represented in MIT’s public art collection. 

  4. Joan Jonas: They Come to Us without a Word

    In 2015 Joan Jonas’s They Come to Us without a Word was presented by the MIT List Visual Arts Center in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State at the 56th International Art Exhibition - la Biennale di Venezia.
