DAYANITA SINGH: MUSEUM BHAVAN. Aveen Sen. Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, New Delhi, 2016. Published by Steidl Verlag, Gottingen. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 298 pp. with 241 ills. 13 x 8 cm. ISBN 9783958291614 In English.
Due date: December 2016. Publisher's description: With Museum Bhavan, Dayanita Singh (born 1961) forges a new space between publishing and the museum, an experience where books have the same -- if not greater -- artistic value as prints hanging on a gallery wall. Consisting of 10 individual "museums" in book form, Museum Bhavan is a miniature version of Singh's eponymous traveling exhibition, with prints placed in folding expanding wooden structures. The images in Museum Bhavan have been intuitively grouped into lyrical chapters in a visual story such as "Little Ladies Museum" and "Ongoing Museum," as well as more specific series such as "Museum of Machines." As in Singh's first project, Sent a Letter (2008), the books are housed in a handmade box and fold out into accordion-like strips which the artist encourages viewers to install and curate as they wish in their own homes. The exhibition thus becomes a book, and the book an exhibition.
