Speed and its Limits

Seminar, in English and French, Paul Desmarais Theatre, 21 June 2008, 9am - 5pm

Speed and its Limits explores the pivotal role played by speed in modern life: from art to architecture and urbanism to graphics and design to economics to the material culture of the eras of industry and information. A colloquium organised by the CCA, in collaboration with the Wolfsonian-Florida International University and Stanford Humanities Lab, in preparation for the 2009 exhibition Speed Limits.

Featured speakers include: Jeffrey T. Schnapp, Stanford Humanities Lab Pierre Merlin, Université de Paris I – Panthéon Sorbonne Edward Dimendberg, University of California, Irvine Jeffrey Meikle, University of Texas at Austin Robert Levine, California State University Tamar Zinguer, The Cooper Union Stephen Kern, Ohio State University Timothy C. Harte, Bryn Mawr College Guy Nordenson, Princeton University and Guy Nordenson & Associates

From 20 May to 12 October 2009, the CCA, in collaboration with the Wolfsonian-Florida International University, presents Speed Limits. The exhibition is curated by Jeffrey T. Schnapp and marks the centenary of the foundation of the Italian Futurist movement, whose inaugural manifesto famously proclaimed “that the world’s magnificence has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed.”
