Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: Not Everyone Will be Taken Into the Future

Tate Modern presents the first major retrospective of the Kabakovs in the UK, coinciding with the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution.

We have designed the visual catalogue that accompanies this exhibition, a celebration of five decades of work tracing back from Ilya Kabakov’s early paintings, drawings and installations to the collaborative projects crafted alongside his wife Emilia after his move to the West in 1987, including immersive installations and architectural models. 

The exhibition is on until 27 January 2018.
