Bill Viola: The Eye of the Heart
Tuesday November 21 2017 - 19:00
Meeting point : Maxwell-Cummings Auditorium – 1379A Sherbrooke Street West
Duration : 1h
In English
 

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Mark Kidel, this is a definitive portrait of the world’s leading video artist. Since 1972 Viola has created critically acclaimed architectural video installations, sound environments, videotapes, electronic music performances and works for television broadcast. His evocative pieces focus on universal human experiences and are inspired by both western and eastern art as well as religion and mystical traditions.

Bill Viola: The Eye of the Heart features the artist at work, rarely seen footage from his own archive and in-depth interviews with Viola himself. Filmmaker, Mark Kidel, of Calliope Media, was granted unprecedented access to Bill Viola and his personal archives in the process of making the documentary. Within the film Viola talks passionately about his life and the artistic influences that have driven his artwork from the beginning and made him one of the true pioneers of video-art. From his childhood memory of drowning, to the artistic exploration and political activism of his years at Syracuse University, and on to the shattering death of his mother, Viola talks candidly about the interplay of his life and work. As many of his works focus on emotions and the great universal experiences, the documentary highlights just how much Viola’s life and work are inextricably linked.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Bill Viola: Naissance à rebours, DHC/ART Foundation

The Arte Musica Foundation continues its complete concert presentation of the sacred cantatas of J. S. Bach, one of the world’s most universally admired composers. In keeping with the liturgical cycle, each concert features at least one cantata for the Sunday it was originally composed.

Reminder: Short rehearsals take place 45 minutes before each concert and are designed to help you sing along with the final chorale of one of the cantatas.

We welcome you to pursue the adventure with us!
