I've always been a Peter Greenaway fan and Roberta Smith wrote up a nice review of his current piece in Venice. Greenaway's multimedia installation is based on the Italian Mannerist Paolo Veronese’s gigantic painting, The Wedding Feast at Cana. The installation is set in a Palladio-designed refectory, a salient element for the installation, for Palladio is considered the quintessence of the High Renaissance with his calm and harmonic construction. Sounds like the ultimate Venetian experience; sight, sound, architecture, water, and art (and good food). Let's go.
