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.

Two-part panorama featuring Colonnade Street, Louis Vignes, 1864. Albumen print. 8.8 x 11.4 in. (22.5 x 29 cm), each print. The Getty Research Institute, 2015.R.15 (digital image courtesy of the Getty's Open Content Program)

The Getty Research Institute‘s inaugural digital exhibition, The Legacy of Ancient Palmyra, was developed “as a tribute to Palmyra” with images by traveling artists and explorers who documented the site in former states of preservation. “Their works contribute to Palmyra’s legacy, one that goes far beyond the stones of its once great buildings.”

There are numerous additional resources to explore, including a Facebook Live behind-the-scenes perspective event with The Legacy of Ancient Palmyra co-curator Peter Louis Bonfitto and web designers Masato Nakada and Karen To Nakada as they discuss the challenges and insights that came with the creation of the GRI’s first online exhibition on Tuesday, March 14, from 9:00-9:15 am.
