Bill Viola Meets Michelangelo

The Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in London will turn over its galleries next year to the US artist and honorary academician Bill Viola (pictured right) for its first major video art exhibition. Twelve of Viola’s metaphysical moving image pieces will be paired with 15 spiritual works by Michelangelo, including one of the museum’s central treasures, the Taddei Tondo (pictured left), as well as a set of drawings on loan from the Royal Collection.
