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.
Tony Cokes: If UR Reading This It's 2 Late, Vol II provides an opportunity to see a broad range of powerful artworks made by Cokes since the 1980s, alongside two newly commissioned films. Cokes’s video works are eviscerating critiques and affective art works, bringing together color theory, sound, music, and texts quoting a polyphony of voices such as Louis Althusser, Malcolm X, David Bowie, Public Enemy and Donald Trump.
The Carpenter Center, 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.
