The Menil Collection presents Conversation with Sean Mooney: Introducing Edmund Carpenter
Over the course of his life, Edmund Carpenter (1922–2011) was an archeologist, visual anthropologist, media theorist, filmmaker, teacher, and author. With his wife Adelaide de Menil, he was a collector of ethnographic art. His installation, Witnesses, is on permanent view in Menil’s Surrealist galleries. He curated the exhibition Upside Down in Paris’ Musée du quai Branly and later at The Menil Collection.
Sean Mooney, curator of the Edmund Carpenter Collection and of the exhibition MicroCosmos, will discuss Carpenter’s life and achievements.
