Bill Viola’s “Electronic Renaissance” in Florence

No contributor

Currently on view at the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence is Bill Viola’s “Electronic Renaissance.” The exhibition, up through, includes work from throughout Viola’s career, interacting with the unique architecture of Palazzo Strassi as well as several masterpieces from the Renaissance.

Arturo Galansino and Kira Perov curated the show that brings together works from Viola’s early experiments with video in the 1970s, up to his more recent video works and installations. Viola is one of the most important contemporary artists working today in video, sound, and performance, known for creating immersive experiences.

“I am so happy to be returning to my Italian roots and to have this amazing opportunity to repay my debt to the great city of Florence with an offering of my work. Living and working in Florence in the 1970s, I never thought I would have the honor to show in such a distinguished institution as the Palazzo Strozzi,” saidViola in a statement.

“Electronic Renaissance” extends outside the Palazzo Stozzi, thanks to a collaboration with the Grande Museo del Duomo, at the Baptistry of San Giovanni and the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, where Viola’s Observance (2002) and Acceptance (2008) are staged.
