MEMBERS-ONLY DAY TRIP: "The Art of Bill Viola in Philadelphia"

The Art of Bill Viola in Philadelphia

 ASG members will experience the art of Bill Viola at three venerated Philadelphia arts venues: The Fabric Workshop, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA), and the Barnes Foundation. Bill Viola (b.1951) is internationally recognized as one of the world’s leading contemporary artists; his work has enthralled viewers for over 40 years. Viola’s pioneering use of video, sound, and new media have greatly contributed to an expansion of the field, paving the way for new generations of artists working in electronic media. Viola’s work communicates transcendental ideas about the human experience such as birth, consciousness, and death rooted in Eastern and Western spiritual traditions such as Zen Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, and Christian mysticism. Our lunch (included in the trip price) will be in the Garden Pavilion at the Barnes.
