It will be the artist's first solo exhibition in Barcelona, featuring both new and older works.
Bill Viola is considered a true pioneer of videoart. Born in New York in 1951, he became interested in this discipline from a very young age, and his work evolved as video technology developed. This is why, in part, he is now one of the most world-renowned artists in this field. Using video, Viola has explored the human condition through such universal topics as birth, death, love, pain and redemption. This October, Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera is presenting what will be the artist's first solo show in Barcelona: “Bill Viola. Mirrors of the Unseen”. It explores his career, from works like Reflecting pool (1977-1979) that defined his early years through more recent ones, such as Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water), from 2014. The exhibition gives visitors insight into how Viola thinks, and his ongoing interest in human nature and the transitory nature of life.
“Bill Viola. Mirrors of the Unseen” is on from 4 October to 5 January, Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm, in the Milà family flat at La Pedrera. It features works in which images are felt, heard, stirring up and revealing deep emotions. In general, Bill Viola's creations are extremely intense and beautiful, which makes it unique and moving.
Tickets to the exhibition cost €5. You can get yours on the La Pedrera website.
