We look forward to your visit!
Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University is housed in the only building in North America designed by Swiss-born architect Le Corbusier. It hosts the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, exhibition spaces, and the Harvard Film Archive.
Making books with artists is central to the Carpenter Center’s mission. Our publishing program complements our commission-based curatorial program, with a focus on new scholarship and texts, and an artist-involved design process. Many of our books are co-published with our institutional collaborators, and they are distributed by D.A.P.
