As part of our ‘Does Art Connect Us?’ Day and to coincide with the ‘Bill Viola / Michelangelo: Life Death Rebirth’ exhibition, we have joined forces with MUBI for a special screening of ‘Bill Viola: The Road to St Paul’s’ (2017).
The film documents Bill Viola and his wife and close collaborator Kira Perov’s 12-year odyssey to create two permanent video installations for St Paul’s Cathedral in London: Martyrs (2014) and Mary (2016), which offer a contemporary contemplation on life, death and the afterlife. This film follows Viola’s remarkable story of creating the first art commission of its kind to be installed in Britain’s best known cathedral.
The Screening is followed by a Q&A with Director, Gerald Fox.
Director: Gerald Fox
Running time: 81 minutes
Organised in partnership with MUBI.
