Congratulations to Bill Viola on the opening of Bill Viola: Impermanence, on view now through September 13, 2020, at Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul, Turkey. Curated by Kathleen Forde, Impermanence is Viola's first major survey exhibition in Istanbul. The works are like koans with their narratives—classic Buddhist riddles that are unresolvable, inviting us to experience a glimpse of what Viola calls the “invisible world” where our standard intellectual configurations of existence are revealed to be artificial. His works have roots in both Eastern and Western art as well as spiritual traditions, including Zen Buddhism, Islamic Sufism, and Christian mysticism. [More]
