Experiment in Progress: Do Not Disturb

When: Fri., April 7 2017

Earlier this year, from January to March, the Cleveland Print Room hosted Inside Outside: Dr. Jelliffe’s Slides, an exhibition of institutional “Magic Lantern” slides from the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Hospital, now known as the Neurological Institute of New York, part of the Columbia University Medical Center. Although the photographer of these slides is unknown, the collection was formerly owned by Smith Ely Jelliffe, MD and PhD, who used the slides for public and professional presentations. An author, professor and physician, Dr. Jelliffe was one of the earliest proponents of psychoanalysis in the U.S. These slides include photographs of patients, hospitals, diagrams, x-rays and even artwork by patients. Cleveland Print Room’s newest exhibition, Experiment in Progress: Do Not Disturb, showcases artistic responses to the original slides by 15 local artists and musicians. Opening with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. today, the exhibition remains on view through May 13. During the opening, live performances will take place between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Admission is free.
