For over a century, the Venice Biennale has been one of the most prestigious cultural events in the art world calendar. Founded in 1895, it promotes new artistic ventures and events in contemporary art with internationally acclaimed film, arts, architecture, music, theatre and dance all being exposed to the public view. This year is no exception, with regard to the new and novel innovative content.
One of the highlights includes the latest project of British film director Peter Greenaway – entitled ‘‘The Wedding At Cana.’’ The art film combines classic paintings, including Renaissance art and Picasso works, with cutting edge image technolog and is showing in Venice at the Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore.
Visit Peter Greenaway’s website for more on his fascinating use of different medium in the 50 minute film to tell this Biblical tale.
