Institution


Mission

Free and open to the public, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts is the center for contemporary art and artists at Harvard University. Through exhibitions, new commissions, public events, publications, and residencies, the Carpenter Center is dedicated to artist-centered programming and to building a vibrant community around contemporary art. This community is defined by an ethos of experimentation, diverse perspectives, and making connections across disciplines and fields. Housed within Le Corbusier’s only building in North America, the Carpenter Center’s projects are enriched by the educational mission of the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, and the cultural resources of a large research university.

Support

Generous support for Carpenter Center programs is provided by the Division of Arts and Humanities, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University; The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, Harvard University; and the Friends of the Carpenter Center: Fotene and Tom Coté, John Morace and Thomas Kennedy, and John R. and Barbara Robinson.

Please Note
All exhibitions and public events at the Carpenter Center are part of a planned and curated program. Initiated and organized by the Carpenter Center’s curatorial staff and their collaborators, the Carpenter Center's program reflects the institution’s specific artistic, thematic, pedagogical, and civic goals. Exhibitions and public programs are the result of extensive research, studio visits, and engagement with colleagues across disciplines. Therefore, we are not able to accept unsolicited submissions of artwork for exhibition or event proposals.
