Exhibition Catalogue: I Do Not Know What It Is I Am Like: The Art of Bill Viola
Official catalogue for the current exhibition I Do Not Know What It Is I am Like: The Art of Bill Viola.
American artist Bill Viola (b. 1951) is celebrated for his genre-defying, mind-expanding work in new media. He is a visionary artist whose installations feature moving images that invite meditations on birth, death, and spiritual themes as well as the nature of human consciousness.
This special exhibition, organized for the Barnes by distinguished guest curator John G. Hanhardt, will bring together a selection of the artist’s major pieces from 1976 to 2009, including smaller screen-based works and the rarely seen large-scale installations He Weeps for You, Pneuma, and Ascension.
Hardcover, 176 pages including text and video stills. Book measures 9.25" x 11" x 0.75".
