Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts is pleased to announce its fall programming with an exciting number of new commissions, performances, lectures, and solo exhibitions. Intersecting with the Harvard Art Museums, Harvard Dance Program, Woodberry Poetry Room and the Graduate School of Design, as well as beyond the university with Boston-area environmental water agencies, collaboration surfaces as a prevalent theme. Thoughtful and intentional connections with new collaborators are part of a vision to build community around and for the programing, engaging with some of the most invigorating and critical perspectives in contemporary art, design and education today.

James Voorhies, the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director of the Carpenter Center, will introduce and discuss the fall programming at CCVA in the context of collaboration.
