Lagniappe for Moscow
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as: The State Tretyakov Gallery at Krymsky Val
September 7 to January 13, 2019 see Ilya and Emily Kabakov
The title of the exhibition echoes the title of one of its pivotal projects — the installation “Not Everyone Will Be Taken Into the Future” (2001) that represents a train receding into the distance along the rail tracks on which pictures rejected by the future are scattered.
The display will include over 100 works — paintings, graphic pieces, albums, miniature models, and large-scale installations. Among the latter, the centerstage will belong to “Labyrinth (My Mother’s Album)” (1990), “The Man Who Flew into Space from His Apartment” (1985), “Three Nights” (1989), “Objects of His Life” (2005), etc.
A special section will include Ilya Kabakov’s early works of the 1960s and the 1970s.
