Given the tremendous success of Bill Viola‘s exhibition in the Crypt of San Sepolcro in Milan, the exhibition has been extended until February 28th 2018 complete with extended opening hours. From 29th January the exhibition will be open from 17:00 to 21:00 from Monday to Friday and on Sunday from 15:00 to 22:00 while night visits will be confirmed every Friday and Saturday at 22.00 and at 23.00.
The three works by the renowned American video artist are installed in one of the most evocative places in Milan, the oldest underground church in the city. The descent into the crypt of the San Sepolcro helps the visitor to immerse him or herself both physically and mentally in the artist’s poetry. The 3 videos – The Quintet of the Silent, Earth Martyr and The Return – require patience and sensitivity from the observer but what they give back is priceless. Bill Viola is an artist who puts the spirituality of man, the values of different religions and the life-death and resurrection cycle at the heart of his work. Like Renaissance paintings in motion, his videos embrace these profound principles and transmit them in silence, slowly, but with a depth that few other living artists can express.
Treat yourself to half an hour in his company, you will not be disappointed.
