Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Not everyone will be taken into the future
Tate Modern, Bankside, London SE1 9TG
Among the most celebrated artists of their generation, the Kabakovs draw upon the visual culture of the former Soviet Union. The Hermitage Museum has a major collection of their works, with The Red Wagon on permanent display in the new General Staff Building. This exhibition charts the Kabakovs’ incredible artistic journey, from the early paintings, drawings, albums and sculptural works made by Ilya working as an ‘unofficial’ artist in his Moscow studio from the 1960s, through to his move to New York in the late 1980s. Coinciding with the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution it explores the role of the artist in society in uncertain times. It travels on to The Hermitage in St Petersburg after London.
