Archival slides from the Metropolitan Museum find new life as art

Institutional Memory: 35mm Slides from the Met’s CollectionAfter they were digitized, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s massive library of 35-millimeter slides might have ended up as landfill.

Instead they are the materials for an exhibition, Institutional Memory: 35mm Slides from the Met’s Collection, at the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs’s reuse center, Material for the Arts (MFTA). Five artists have transformed the 2×2 in. squares into works of art, from sculptures to a multimedia installation.
