Join us on Zoom on October 21, for Artist Talks with Anthony Romero and SCRAAATCH.
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.

Art, Film, and Visual
Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies is home to a range of studio and theoretical studies in the arts at Harvard University. It offers courses in painting, drawing, sculpture, film, video and animation as well as photography, film history and theory, and contemporary art.
Harvard Film Archive
Harvard Film Archive presents films each week in a 200-seat theater featuring state-of-the-art film and digital projection, regularly hosting filmmakers to discuss their work. The archive holds over 25,000 audio and visual items from around the world and almost every period in film history.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis and in accordance with university and state guidelines, the Harvard Film Archive cinematheque and office will be closed until further notice. HFA staff are working remotely on a range of projects and preparing for an eventual reopening, most likely in 2021. While the physical location remains closed, some remote research services and select collections are available online.
