Amos Rex presents a broad exhibition on pioneering video artist Bill Viola in autumn 2021.

The American Bill Viola (b. 1951) is one of the most acclaimed video and installation artists of this time. Over the course of his forty-five-year career, Bill Viola’s visionary use of the medium of the moving image and installation art explores key themes of human existence: birth, life and death, spirituality and introspection. His works combine polished technical execution with powerful emotional expression.

In the subterranean exhibition rooms of Amos Rex, Viola’s artistic register is on full display: from large immersive projections of mythically flowing waters and fires, to smaller, intimate works that home in on emotions and states of being. Viewers are brought into a personal, reflective experience.
