Ilya and Emilia Kabakov

Not Everyone Will Be Taken into the Future

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

This extensive exhibition of Ilya and Emilia Kabakov's work will explore the theme of failed utopia. Taking its cue from the title of Ilya Kabakov's text Not Everyone Will be Taken into the Future, the exhibition will present Ilya Kabakov's paintings, drawings and albums made in Moscow from the 1950s to the 1980s before he emigrated to the United States. The exhibition will also show the 'total' installations made in collaboration with Emilia from 1989 to the present, which evoke the history and visual culture of the Soviet Union.

The exhibition traces the central role of painting and drawing within Ilya's practice and his recurrent use of imagined biographies and personal memories, including his creation of fictional artists. Architectural models of realised and unrealised projects will be displayed alongside immersive installations.
