Meet Nina LaNegra!
Join us for her slide talk, one of the ten featured presentations that make up Elisa H. Hamilton’s new communal storytelling and photography project “Slideshow.” The event is free but reservations are required – reserve your seat at the ticket link.
Produced in conjunction with HUBWeek, “Slideshow” is using the original slideshow format and tangible analog slides and invites HUBweek participants to share in the day-to-day work, family life, and social context of each woman.

Taking place in and around a shipping container located in the HUB at City Hall Plaza, Slideshow will create a community viewing and conversation space. The eleven slide presentations, created by the women along with one by the artist, will take place at the container between October 12 and 15. When not activated with a slide talk, the shipping container will be a place for the public to touch, hold, and examine the women’s slides together on a communal light table with a magnifying loupe
