Marta Braun lecture at McGill

Marta Braun

“Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion: The Question of Narrative”
Mar. 3, 2010 – 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

McGill University, Arts Building, Room W-225, 853 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec

Marta Braun, Professor at the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University.

Eadweard Muybridge’s 1887 photographic atlas ‘Animal Locomotion’ is a curious mixture of art and science, a polysemic text that has been subject to a number of readings. In her lecture, Braun will analyze the different claims made for the work, and will focus on her discovery of the work’s multiple authorship: the contributions of Muybridge himself on the one hand, and those of his committee members on the other.

Marta Braun is Professor at the School of Image Arts and Director of the graduate program in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management at Ryerson University. Her research focuses on Étienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge.
