__________

The Velaslavasay Panroama welcomes author and art historian José Antonio Rodríguez, here to give a presentation on visual technologies, projection methods and entertainments popular in Mexico before the proliferation of cinema. Professor Rodríguez will talk about the multitudinous forms of optical magic, including the magic lantern, diorama, cosmorama, panorama and scientific spectacles which were once popular throughout Mexico and beyond, and how our encounters with visual spectacles guide us in constructing our own vision of the world.

This is a bilingual illustrated lecture, presented in English & Spanish.

Una presentación sobre la tecnologia visual, las proyecciones y los espectaculos que precediero al cine en Mexico. Esta conferencia ilustrada se presentará en forma bilingüe en Inglés y Español.
