Art Talks





Top: Adam Lowe, of Factum Arte. Bottom: Peter Greenaway, from Leonardo's Last Supper: A Vision.

I've heard today about some art events and talks, in New York City and London.

New York: A couple of weeks ago I reported that Peter Greenaway's Leonardo's Last Supper: A Vision — one of his multimedia installation/events based on classic paintings — would be staged at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City from December 3 through January 6, 2011. Now we hear from the Armory that they've scheduled related programming. On December 1, Adam Lowe, founder/director of Factum Arte, will be lecturing on the painstaking process of working with Greenaway to translate Leonardo's fragile masterpiece into digital media. See Duplicating da Vinci: The Art of Cloning a Masterpiece

Also on Greenaway, see Barbara Penner's Places' essay The Wedding at Cana

London: This summer we published The East Anglians, by photographer/ethnographer Justin Partyka; this Thursday we'll be publishing a portfolio of his photographs of Saskatchewan. Now Field Works: Photographs from East Anglia, is on exhibition at Eleven Spitalfields in London, from November 27 through December 18. And on  December 7, there's a public conversation between Partyka and architect Sir Terry Farrell — see here for details.

Just wanted bloggers know that coming soon, we will be launching a ground-breaking collaborative platform for artists and institutions. This will have a positive impact for emerging artists who are looking for new opportunities to jumpstart their careers. To stay tuned for what is coming please check www.blancsquare.com

Your picture is of Rafa Rachewsky, not Adam Lowe. Rafa is much better looking than Adam
