When COVID-19 forced us to close our galleries in March of 2020, we began to think of ways we might share our programs with audiences at home. Thankfully, technology has allowed us to host artist talks online, but digital communion is bittersweet, and we found ourselves missing the tangible residues of in-person gatherings.

To that end, we are pleased to announce a new publishing initiative: Carpenter Center Conversations. For each of our virtual public programs, we will publish an edited transcript of the conversation as a pocket-sized booklet and make these booklets available for free by mail and as PDF downloads. Our hope is that these booklets will serve as a material record of our programming during this time of distance, as well as a future art historical resource.

Subscribe to Carpenter Center Conversations today and receive the forthcoming booklet as well as all subsequent booklets in the series. The next booklet to mail will be In Conversation: Kemi Adeyemi, Jessica Bell Brown, Lauren Haynes, and Jamillah James. 

See the full list of forthcoming booklets and explore the archive of past conversations below.
