October 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Artist's Talk with Eric Pickersgill and Amy Herman. 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…

Nasisse plays with this deeply planted instinct by focusing his lens on naturally eroded rock formations in the Southwest and South, while making clay pieces that challenge the viewer to discern the intentionality that went into creating them. The tension between images of rocks that “accidentally” look intentional and ceramic sculptures that intentionally look accidental yields a rare opportunity to see how seeing works.
