Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC)

The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is where the arts, sciences, and technology interact with and influence each other by using the same facilities and technologies, and by breathing the same air. We host artists and researchers to produce and present new work in a building designed with sophisticated architectural and technical infrastructure.
