re: 35mm slides. they are very durable, I don't think you have anything to worry about, as far as them being damaged.
they can sit in the carosel forever, pretty much.
Even if you are using a super industrial slide projector, like the Navitar Xenon 750, they are still designed not to damage your slide.
A normal slide, in a properly working slide projector can be left on for many many hours before any thing happens, and then, if there is a problem,
it usually is the bulb, or the projector overheats. But that is only if there is something wrong w/ it in the first place.
I have seen slide projectors on all day w/ the same slide w/ no problems.

That being said, if you have some kind of homemade slide, such as painted, or stuff sandwiched between glass, that is a different matter,
and you should just do some tests w/ your lesser important slides.

As far as performance spaces, maybe if you shared more details, people could grasp more what your needs are, and know from that.

I know the window at ATA has revolving installations, but I dont know how they schedule that.
