"What do we do with all these slides?" is a question frequently encountered by VRA members during the last several years. Various case studies, representing different scenarios, stages, processes and outcomes, will address this question, offering suggestions that may include archiving, digitizing, disposing, and/or recycling of 35 mm slides, in addition to ideas for re-purposing the spaces left behind by slide collections

  16. 16. Deaccessisoned Series To deaccession is to remove an artwork from a museum’s collection. The term has a specific meaning in a professional context, but it also summons up associations of faded value, obsolescence, and abandonment. When I hear the term deaccession, I can’t help but think of rusted-out, discarded naval vessels. Deaccessioned. Decomissioned. Gone. Kaput. Over. The art is a kind of double lament. It can’t help but acknowledge the photograph’s characteristic commerce with time, memory, and ephemerality, and it extends that sense of loss to a consideration of the medium itself.
