Screening
Jasi Lampkin: The Harvard Bubble

Join us for a semester-long screening of Jasi Lampkin’s film, The Harvard Bubble (2020). Lampkin, an Art, Film, and Visual Studies concentrator, created this film for her undergraduate thesis in the spring of 2020.


Bookshop

The Carpenter Center’s bookshop is a collaboration with Motto Books, a bookshop based in Berlin. The bookshop is one of the only places in the Boston-area that carries small press contemporary art books, magazines, and journals, with an emphasis on international publications and limited-edition projects.
