New appointment: Michael Mittelman, associate director, Center for Advanced Visual Studies

Michael Mittelman has been appointed associate director of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS), succeeding Larissa Harris who joined the Queens Museum of Art in New York as curator last fall.


Mittelman is the founder of ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art, a bi-annual DVD compilation of contemporary time-based art that highlights artists whose works are best documented in video or sound; before ASPECT’s founding in 2003, there was no affordable vehicle for widespread dissemination of such work.

Under the leadership of CAVS director Krzysztof Wodiczko, Mittelman will be responsible for day-to-day operations at the Center. He will also be working closely with Wodiczko and Ute Meta Bauer, Director of the Visual Arts Program, on facilitating the merger of the Center with the Visual Arts Program; the yet-to-be-named merged unit is scheduled to relocate to the expanded Media Lab facility on east campus during the 2010 academic year.
