DIAPOSITIVE: the 35mm slide upended

July 26, 2018 - November 4, 2018
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…

Once forgotten amongst the bustle of Southeast Asia, Myanmar is making its presence known on the global stage, for better or for worse. Its economy is growing on the foundation of oil and natural gas exports. Tourism is flourishing in this once closed military state. 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. Yet, behind the warm and welcoming…
