St Cuthbert's has on display in its Sanctuary a very famous video art installation by the American artist Bill Viola. Viola is regarded as the founder of video art and is internationally respected as the top artist in his field.There are only two other pieces of his work currently on display in a Church and both of these are in St Paul's Cathedral in London.
The piece is ‘Three Women' 2008 and has most recently been on display in the Grand Palais, Paris and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and now we have it in Edinburgh until 1st September!
