Philosophical, spiritual and gorgeous.
The artwork of Renaissance master Michelangelo and contemporary video artist Bill Viola embodies these qualities. These artists are from different centuries but both speak to similar universal themes of life, death, and rebirth.
The Royal Academy’s upcoming exhibition Bill Viola / Michelangelo features the exquisite, timeless drawings of Michelangelo side by side with ethereal, hypnotising works by Bill Viola.
Join us as author and art historian Dr Marie-Anne Mancio explores the transcendent talents of these two artistic geniuses in an attempt to tackle the most fundamental questions about humanity.
Morning event with coffee and pastries.
In time for the upcoming RA exhibition Bill Viola / Michelangelo (opens 26 January 2019)
