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
