The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts presents its fall 2022 season of public programs, with a conversation between exhibiting artist, B. Ingrid Olson art historian Leah Pires; and a reading by Renee Gladman and Rosmarie Waldrop, writers who have had a major influence on Olson's practice, presented in collaboration with the Woodbury Poetry Room. Olson’s two simultaneous solo exhibitions, History Mother and Little Sister, will be on view on Levels 1 and 3 of the Carpenter Center through December 23, 2022.

The Carpenter Center will also partner with the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies and the Harvard Film Archive to present a film screening of The African Desperate, which includes a post-screening conversation between with the film’s director and 2022 Josep Lluis Sert Practitioner, Martine Syms, and Chair of the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies, David Joselit.

There will be two additional screenings of The African Desperate at the Harvard Film Archive, on Friday, October 21 and Sunday, October 23.
