I will be one of three women artists working on NovelSpace, based on The Grapes of Wrath, by John Steinbeck. I love Steinbeck’s humanist lens and commitment to representing the marginalized and downtrodden. This work is so relevant and this immersive experience should be really mindful and beautiful! I hope I can share the work with you!
Chapter 1 of NovelSpace: “Two Midnights in a Jug,” an installation based on The Grapes of Wrath.
Dates are April 29 – May 4
The installation will be hosted by Brooklyn Fire Proof
NovelSpace interprets great American novels & creates art installations in relevant urban spaces to inspire our audience through exploration, interaction & ambiance.
For the reader, every novel is a personal experience. That’s why every NovelSpace is inspired by someone’s interpretation. So whether you’ve read it a hundred times or you’ve never heard of it, no one leaves a NovelSpace without a fresh perspective.
