Terri Cohn writes: My final stop at the Whitney was Bill Viola, Five Angels for the Millenium. This overblown five channel video projection, which resembles a creation myth, suggests that Viola has succumbed to the seduction of the big screen. One of the most interesting facets of Viola’s work has always been its sculptural nature, with which he has dispensed here. Why the Whitney and Tate collaborated in the purchase of this work is a mystery.
