Join us for an evening with Emilia Kabakov, of the celebrated Kabakov artistic duo, whose major retrospective is to open at Tate Modern in mid October. In an exclusive discussion with curator Elena Zaytseva for Pushkin House, Emilia will talk about her collaborative work with her husband Ilya Kabakov, the construction of some of their famous large-scale installations and other works.
Curator Elena Zaytseva is co-editor of ‘Cosmic Shift: Contemporary Art Writing’, published by ZED in October. Through discussion with Emilia, she will explore the Kabakovs’ existing exploration into languages of Utopia and the creation of fictional personas that exist somewhere between science, theory, fiction and mysticism.
Please note that Pushkin House will hold the tickets of latecomers for twenty minutes following the event start time, after which unclaimed tickets will be released.
If you are running late, please contact us in order to avoid this.
