Mark Braude, lecturer in Stanford’s departments of Art History, French, and History, discusses his curricular exhibition, Speed and Power. Drawn entirely from the Cantor’s collection, the works on view in this exhibition explore the intertwined issues of speed (physical acceleration) and power (social stratification) largely through the medium of photography, arguably the “fastest” means of representation that modern artists have at their disposal.
