Ted Stamm slides of works of art and exhibitions comprise of approximately 4500 35mm slides assembled by the painter Ted Stamm between his arrival in New York in 1968 and his death in 1984. The majority of the slides were photographed by Stamm himself, and collectively form an expansive document of artworks and exhibitions on view in New York during that time period, by a variety of artists. The collection includes both exhibition views and individual artworks photographed in situ. In addition to exhibitions in galleries and nonprofit spaces, Stamm also photographed works installed in public spaces, graffiti and street art, and views of the gallery facades and architectural fabric of Lower Manhattan. Stamm used the collection in his own teaching, and the collection includes a small folder with examples of syllabi, course descriptions, and other teaching materials.
