MIT’s List Center for the Visual Arts has a new director. Paul Ha will replace the retired Jane Farver. Ha, 48, has been director at the Contemporary Art Museum in St. Louis since 2002 and, before that, served as director of White Columns in New York. He is no stranger to Boston. He attended the opening festivities at the Institute of Contemporary Art’s building opening almost five years ago and said he’s thrilled about the Museum of Fine Arts’ plan to open a contemporary wing later this month. “It’s really exciting to be part of the arts scene in Boston,’’ he said. “The MFA project proves that contemporary art is a growing sector.’’ As for the List, Ha will start in December and doesn’t expect to make any dramatic changes upon his arrival. “The List has an incredible reputation,’’ Ha said. “My task is to continue on that and grow their reputation.’’
