DIAPOSITIVE: the 35mm slide upended

July 26 - November 4
Cassilhaus NC United States + Google Map

In Diapositive, six artists take on found or neglected 35mm slide collections as medium and subject matter, subverting the format’s 20th century associations as didactic or diaristic storytelling tools. Once the premier medium for the communal presentation of photographic travelogues, as well as art historical instruction, 35mm slides collections are rarely built today yet they still persist and change hands, chiefly among artists, librarians, film enthusiasts, and nostalgists. Their beauty and complexity as objects, symbols, and relics, often prevents their…

This growth is reflected in the day-to-day lives of the Burmese, as the heavy hand of government lifts ever so slowly. Vibrant colors pervade their work and their worship.
