ref: g7s Jun 4-24 2010 THE ROSEMARY BRANCH THEATRE The Leonardo Question - Open a 'pdf' of this press release - return to Galleries PR Index


THE LEONARDO QUESTION is premiered in London

Following huge audience acclaim Caroline Wiseman’s new play The

Leonardo Question will be premiered at The Rosemary Branch Theatre,

London N1 from 4th to 24th June 2010.

The question - where can modern art go from here is explored with

historical insight. We are taken on an enlightening and entertaining journey

through the story of modern art from Cubism to now.

The key players in the history of modern art re-enact, in their actual

words, the important moments of the story of modern art. We meet the

artists: Picasso, Duchamp, Pollock, Warhol, Bacon, Gilbert and George,

Barney, Koons, Murakami, Hirst and Emin as well as the influential people

around them including the legendary Peggy Guggenheim and the powerful

Hans Ulrich Obrist. Leonardo da Vinci provides timeless wisdom.

“The Leonardo Question revolutionizes the art world because, by re-

living art history, we can all understand it. And it stimulates debate about

who will lead us into Post-Conceptualism,” says Caroline Wiseman. “So,

simultaneously in June at The Rosemary Branch Theatre we will hold a ‘Who

is the next Picasso?’ contest, similar to Peggy Guggenheim’s quest when she

discovered Jackson Pollock.

Most evenings after the performance a leading contemporary art

thinker will lead a discussion over dinner. All are welcome to attend, please
