Petra Warrington and Alexandra Baggallay are attending an exclusive private breakfast viewing of the Bill Viola/Michelangelo – Life Death Rebirth exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts today, Wednesday 6 March 2019, hosted by the Smith & Williamson Forensic Services team.

This exhibition explores the affinities between Bill Viola and Michelangelo, and is conceived as an immersive journey through the cycle of life.

There will be a selection of Michelangelo’s most poignant works, including those from Windsor such as his drawings of the Crucifixion, as well as Michelangelo’s only marble sculpture in the UK, the Virgin and Child with the Infant St John (the ‘Taddei Tondo’).

From Viola, the exhibition features 12 major installations spanning his entire career, including the extraordinary Tristan’s Ascension (The Sound of a Mountain Under a Waterfall), a five-metre-high projection depicting the ascent of the soul after death.
