Promoted by the Municipality of Milan-Culture, the BILL VIOLA exhibition is produced and organized by Palazzo Reale and Arthemisia, with the collaboration of Bill Viola Studio. A survey of works from Viola’s entire artistic career, it offers the public fifteen masterpieces in the halls at Palazzo Reale.
The Milan exhibition offers visitors a path on which they find themselves contemplating the profound issues that Bill explores with slow-motion images in which light, colour, and sound can create moments of deep reverence. Emotions, meditation, and passions can emerge from his videos, taking the viewer on an inner journey.
Thoughtfully curated by Kira Perov, the artist’s wife and executive director of Bill Viola Studio, forty years of work are displayed through a careful selection of pieces, defining a unique event giving us the opportunity to reflect upon life, to set out on our own inner journey, and to immerse ourselves in an alternative world entirely different from the one we left behind at the entrance.
The show is accompanied by a catalogue edited by Valentino Catricalà and Kira Perov, which is intended not only as documentation of the exhibition, but aims to become genuine study material for future generations. The catalogue is edited by Skira.
The event’s media partner is Urban Vision and its mobility partner is Frecciarossa Treno Ufficiale.
The exhibition is part of Milano Art Week (11 – 16 April 2023), the diffuse event coordinated by the Councillorship for Culture of the Municipality of Milan, in collaboration with miart, which networks the city’s leading public institutions and private foundations active in modern and contemporary art, with a dedicated programming of exhibitions and activities.
