Carnegie International and PGH Photo Fair present Dayanita Singh in conversation with Dan Leers, Curator of Photography, Carnegie Museum of Art about her award-winning publication Museum Bhavan (Steidl, 2007), a museum in the form of a photography book

Winner of the Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation 2017 Photo Book of the Year Award and the 2018 ICP Book Award, Dayanita Singh is a participant in the 2018 Carnegie International. Come hear the New Delhi-based artist speak about how her exhibitions of photography take many forms, including a jacket she will wear. This garment will inspire a short sketching session to design our own pocket museums. Snacks will follow.

There will also be a book signing after the talk with limited copies of Museum Bhavan available.
