Exhibition of handcrafted slide projections by Luther Price opens at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts
Luther Price: Light Windows, Jan 26–Feb 1, 2015. Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

CAMBRIDGE, MASS.- Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University presents Luther Price: Light Windows, a solo exhibition of recent handcrafted slide projections by the Boston-based artist and filmmaker Luther Price, from January 26 to February 1, 2015. The exhibition is organized in conjunction with Price’s retrospective at the Harvard Film Archive to be held from January 31 to February 2, 2015.

As a filmmaker, Luther Price salvages film footage from discarded prints of old documentaries, Hollywood classics, home movies, how-to reels, and pornography to cut, alter, and reassemble into handmade films. His process often involves physically and chemically manipulating the filmstrip surface by painting, burying, applying ink, or effacing it with scratches and scrapes. The resulting films are completely unique objects, and when combined with light the projections become highly charged visual imagery, transforming 8 mm, 16 mm, and 35 mm found film into unforgettable cinematic experiences.

Price has recently turned his attention to making 35 mm slides from discarded film stock. He applies the same labor-intensive technical processes used for his projected film works. Comparable to the unique qualities each frame possesses in his films, the slides, too, are discrete works compiled from a range of materials, including found images, patterns, dirt, mold, insects, inkblots, and stains of various colors. Price utilizes the standard window of the 35 mm slide to arrange and crop his materials. The exhibition Light Windows will consist of six 35 mm slide projectors, each with a carousel of 80 handmade slides from his ongoing series Light Fractures projected onto vertical panels installed throughout the gallery on Level 1. The multiscreen visual and aural kaleidoscopic installation will transform the site into an expanded cinematic space where spectators are immersed among projectors responsible for both the illuminated images and the whirring soundscape of simultaneously rotating trays.

Luther Price: Light Windows is organized by James Voorhies, the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director of the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. Price’s retrospective is organized by Haden Guest, Director of the Harvard Film Archive.

Born in Revere, Massachusetts, Luther Price studied sculpture and performing arts at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. His work in film, performance, and installation has been shown nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions and film screenings include Luther Price Lost and Found, transmediale, Berlin (2014); Now and Forever, CIRCUS Gallery, Berlin (2013); How Deep is Your Love?, Dirty Looks at MoMA: Mining the Collection, MoMA/PS1, Long Island City (2013); E’wao Kagoshima and Luther Price, Vilma Gold, London (2013); James and Audrey Foster Prize, ICA, Boston (2013); Luther Price Retrospective, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, curated by Ed Halter (2013); Group Exhibition, Xavier Hufkens, Brussels, curated by Clarissa Dalrymple (2013); Dirty Looks: Tom Rhoads (Luther Price), The Kitchen, New York (2013); 7 Films by Luther Price, ICA, London (2012); Second Nature: Abstract Photography Then and Now, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA (2012); #9, Callicoon Fine Arts, New York (2012); Whitney Biennial (2012); A Luther Price Bestiary, 50th New York Film Festival: Views from the Avant-Garde, curated by Mark McElhatten and Gavin Smith (2012); Alone in the Dark: Projected Phobias, San Francisco Cinematheque (2010).
