About this title


Ranging from 1969 through the early 1990s, the works in this volume have been rarely or never seen before in this country. Ilya Kabakov's installations are complex environments, which he calls "total installations," that immerse viewers in other worlds: communal Soviet apartments, the studio of an untalented artist, or an old Russian school. Humorous and often melancholy narratives in the form of texts on paintings or drawings add to the poignancy of his work.

About the Author:

Born in Dnepopetrovsk, USSR, in 1933, Ilya Kabakov graduated from the V. A. Surikov Art Academy, Moscow, in 1957, and joined the Soviet Artists' Union in 1965. After winning numerous prizes for his art all over the world and on both sides of the Iron Curtain--particularly after the late-80s onset of perestroika allowed him to build a career in the West--Kabakov settled in New York in 1992, where he continues to live and work, along with his wife, Emilia.
