They were the primary means through which art history was taught. All of that has changed now, of course. PowerPoint has relegated analog slide lectures to the scrap heap of history. As a result, universities and art historians have found themselves holding collections of literally thousands of old slides; all carefully labeled, arranged, and cataloged. These collections have become obsolete for the purposes for which they were made. They are sadly unemployed. To remedy the situation, we used the help of artists to give these slides a second life – as raw material and conceptual inspiration for creative works. Artists were mailed 36, randomly selected 2 x 2 slides from a 10,000 slide collection covering the entire history of Western art. Responsive artworks were juried by a small panel of museum, gallery, and educational program directors.
