Attracted by what its sees as the common thought and imagination bonds, IBM UK will be sponsoring the first large scale exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci’s work to be held in the UK for 30 years. The company will be contributing UKP155,000 and an additional UKP55,000 in advertising to the exhibition, which will run at London’s South Bank-based Hayward Gallery, from January 26 to April 16 1989. Exhibits will include 88 drawings normally housed in the Royal Library of Windsor Castle, and works currently held by museums and private collections in Paris, New York, Florence, Madrid and throughout the UK. Additional technology-based contributions include a 36′ model of a flying machine, constructed from original da Vinci sketches by Tetra Design Services Ltd, and laser disk players and monitors from Thorn EMI. IBM’s Winchester-based Scientific Centre will also be providing technology in the shape of computer graphics, designed to explore recurring themes in Leonardo’s work; sequences are known to include geometry, major architectural projects, and the perspective of The Last Supper. Definitely an event to look forward to this winter for anyone who can get to London, and if it approaches the quality of the Renoir exhibition IBM sponsored at the same gallery three seasons ago, one not to be missed.
