An 'apple box' is a piece of equipment most often found on film sets and used as a riser to bring props in and out of a camera's frame. In this show, sixty of these boxes have been transformed into a daybed on which visitors to the gallery are invited to sit or lie. Also, on the walls of the exhibition are several new pieces that, like the Daybed, recontextualize the visual language of contemporary film production.

The Opening of Robert Capa’s Mexican Suitcase
Many of us know the story of Robert Capa, the revered war photographer who gave the world insight into the action and violence of battle from a close up, outsider perspective. However, many of us don’t know about the Mexican Suitcase.
The last contact with the film occurred in Paris. Left behind with a friend for safekeeping before Capa fled to New York to escape the onslaught of German soldiers, the boxes disappeared during the course of the war.
After attempts by his brother, Cornell Capa to recover the missing negatives in the late seventies, and close to 80 years of dead end searches, the images these negatives hold will finally be seen by the public.
The exhibition is organized by assistant curater Cynthia Young. The Mexican Suitcase provides an important and historical context for the work of three impassioned war photographers, and in doing so may call to mind the missing negatives of a more current state of war.
