Fanny de Chaillé: The Library

Fanny de Chaillé: The Library
NEW YORK  •  The New York Public Library's Jefferson Market Branch  •  Ongoing
Fanny de Chaillé: The Library (U.S. premiere)

French artist Fanny de Chaillé creates a living library where visitors are invited to choose from a catalogue of "books"—actually, people—each of whom will relate their individual story once selected. Each "book" is the result of a collaboration between the artist and a New Yorker, who, together, determine a theme, topic, or personal history to be shared. Illuminating each individual's unique role in an increasingly computerized and detached society, The Library is a reminder of the power of storytelling, a practice as ephemeral as it is enduring.
