Bill Viola. Electronic Renaissance

Fuorimostra Bill Viola. Electronic Renaissance

Presenting a major exhibition devoted to Bill Viola at Palazzo Strozzi means offering the Florentine public a chance to get to know one of the most celebrated artists on the contemporary international scene, but at the same time it also means celebrating the American artist’s special relationship with our region. Viola worked in Florence at art/tapes/22, a pioneering video art studio, from 1974 to 1976 and took the great masters of Tuscan art as the models and references for many of his works.
This edition of Fuorimostra Bill Viola. Electronic Renaissance puts together an itinerary designed to encourage visitors to discover and explore Bill Viola’s art in greater depth not only in Palazzo Strozzi but also in six other areas in the region. At the same time, it contains a full programme of joint ventures with museums, cultural institutions and both local and international partners in conjunction with whom cycles of conferences, films and special events will be held throughout the duration of the exhibition. The initiative confirms Palazzo Strozzi’s role as a catalyst for Florence and Tuscany, ceaselessly on the lookout for synergies capable of expanding the cultural value of its exhibitions and of experimenting with new and varied forms of cooperation.

This initiative is part of the project Piccoli Grandi Musei by Fondazione CR Firenze


The challenge facing the Fondazione from the outset has been to bring international quality exhibition and cultural events to Florence and Tuscany.

On the palazzo’s Piano Nobile and in the Strozzina area the Fondazione organises art exhibitions ranging from the art of the ancient world via the Renaissance to the modern and contemporary era.
