Old Masters Remix: A review of ‘Life Death Rebirth’, the Michaelangelo/Bill Viola exhibition at the Royal Academy
"'LIFE DEATH REBIRTH' is primarily a Bill Viola show, with a bit of Michelangelo fairy dust sprinkled on top." Read the review by Jacob Willer.
"Michelangelo draws us into an imaginative world of endless depth; Viola may give us deep pools of water, but he cannot dissolve the screen—he cannot make us go imaginatively beyond it—so the result is ultimately shallow."
