8th and F Streets NW
Bill Viola intimately examines the human face and body through kinetic high-definition videos that often elicit intense emotions and thought. This National Portrait Gallery installation includes works like Man Searching for Immortality/Woman Searching for Eternity (2013), which examines mortality through two aging subjects. Viola uses water, light and spirituality to create moving portraits that connect multiple backgrounds and experiences all at once. Do not miss this cutting-edge exhibit.
