Publications

 

 

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.
