Ilya and Emilia Kabakov - Not Everyone Will Be Taken Into the Future

21-04-2018 - 29-07-2018

The Hermitage State Museum, St. Petersburg, RU

The Hermitage State Museum is pleased to present an exhibition by pioneering conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. Russian-born and American-based, today they are recognized as among the most significant international artists to have emerged in the late 20th century. Other exhibitions at The Hermitage State Museum include ‘The Ilya Kabakov Room’ and ‘Red Wagon’. ‘The Ilya Kabakov Room’, devoted to the conceptual artist and creator of the ‘total installation’ genre born in 1933, contains two fairly small installations: ‘Toilet in the Corner’ and ‘In the Closet’. Kabakov addresses the realm of the personal, intimate and private, asking how one should ‘build and preserve a wall between oneself and others.’
