BILL VIOLA / MICHELANGELO: LIFE DEATH REBIRTH ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS | LONDON
This exhibition explores the affinities between Bill Viola and Michelangelo and is conceived as an immersive journey through the cycle of life. You’ll see a selection of Michelangelo’s most poignant works, including those from Windsor such as his drawings of the Crucifixion, as well as Michelangelo’s only marble sculpture in the UK, the Virgin and Child with the Infant St John (the ‘Taddei Tondo’). From Viola, 12 major installations spanning his entire career will feature, including the extraordinary Tristan’s Ascension (The Sound of a Mountain Under a Waterfall), a five-metre-high projection depicting the ascent of the soul after death.
