The Fiction Project

Rita Banerjee recently produced a hand-made novella, entitled, A Night with Kali, for the Brooklyn Art House Co-op.  The book will be part of the Art House Co-op’s The Fiction Project (2011).  The novella was hand-written and hand-illustrated according to the Art House rules.  You can see scans of the project below:

A Night with Kali will be housed permanently at the Brooklyn Art Library (with portions available on line). However, the novella is being currently featured on the The Fiction Project (2011) tour.  You can view  A Night with Kali in person at the following exhibitions this summer:

Here’s an image of exhibition in action.  This photograph was taken on June 18, 2011 at Madrone Studios in San Francisco, California during the The Fiction Project (2011) tour.  The exhibition featured an area where readers could look up and check-out individual hand-made books from the Brooklyn Art House Co-op’s The Fiction Project (2011) and The Sketchbook Project (2011).  To the right of the library and reading section was a small stage and performance area for poets and writers to read from and perform portions of their hand-written books live.  The Fiction Project will continue its tour at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, IL and Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL this summer.  You can read Rita Banerjee’s novella A Night with Kali at any of these locations or at the Brooklyn Art Library after the tour.
