Evidence by Mike Mandel & Larry Sultan
This is the reprint edition.
Evidence by Mike Mandel’s and Larry Sultan, is a collection of found and recontextualized images taken from public and private American institutions, corporations, and agencies.
In 1977, after sorting through the local picture archives at a California NASA office, the young artists, just out of their graduate studies, received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to continue the work in other such spaces. After sorting through a hundred archives that chronicled America’s frontier into the technologically advanced future, they carefully selected a dynamic batch of images to be sequenced loosely into a book and exhibition.
