  Bill Viola Video in Pushkin State Museum
by johnsakura

Bill Viola Video in Pushkin State Museum was kind of a surprise for me to see in Moscow. I guess and from what I actually saw from Russian audience, people are not very used to this kind of media relating to what art is concerned as I found very much a sense of academism and traditionalism from the XIX and early XX century towards art.

This video wanted to bring back Renaissance way of living to the video in this kind of dramatic and theatrical way.

I put this as off the beaten path cos I guess you saw it saw it, you didnt will never see it again in Moscow or at least in this museum as it was a temporary exhibit...
