ReVIEWing the 35mm Slide

From the family vacation slideshow to the art history presentation, slides were prevalent records of culture once, but have passed out of common usage in the digital age. Kodak stopped making its signature Kodachrome64 slide film in 2009; discontinued the Ektachrome line between 2009 and 2013; and slide projectors in 2004, relegating the format to the past—a visual haze of distant Kodachrome and Ektachrome memories.

With slides incorporated into their medium, the artists featured in ReVIEWing the 35mm Slide revive these once-powerful recorders of art, memory, and time, transforming the worlds contained within their 2-inch x 2-inch cardboard or plastic frames. Curator Maryann J. Riker notes, “By elevating the 35mm slide and the slide projector, we celebrate the slide as a form of storytelling and thereby commemorate its importance in the history of recording culture.”
