Fall 2020 Public Programs



Aug 31 – Dec 30, 2020

The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts presents its fall season of online programming, with conversations between Cauleen Smith and Amber Esseiva; Ja’Tovia Gary and Frank B. Wilderson III; David Reinfurt and Larissa Harris; and Kemi Adeyemi with Jessica Bell Brown, Lauren Haynes, and Jamillah James.

For each of these conversations, the Carpenter Center will publish a limited-edition booklet with an edited transcript of the exchange, images, and biographical material. These booklets will be made available for free both as digital downloads and in hard copy upon request. In this time of online gathering, this publication series is meant to serve as a material record of Carpenter Center programming and an art historical resource for future scholars and artists.

The first booklet in this series, In Conversation: Tony Cokes and Christoph Cox, presents an April 9, 2020 Zoom conversation between artist Tony Cokes and critic Christoph Cox and is available for download now. You may request a free copy of this publication in the mail by filling out the following form
