Bijou: Photographs of Theater Box Offices by Ave Pildas features Pildas’ small-scale vintage black and white photographs from the mid 1970’s. These images document, as the exhibition’s title implies, the small jewel like structures that crown the façade of their theaters. Pildas’ frontal camera position and distance to his subject remain the same in each image. This methodology forms a visual inventory of varied theater box offices; a typology that surveys the remaining traces of a vanishing architectural and cinematic culture.
