Ilya and Emilia Kabakov

Paintings About Paintings

Working together as a husband-wife team for the past three decades, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov have defined and pushed Eastern European conceptualism to epic levels. Their large-scale installations and paintings seamlessly merge both reality and myth to create hyper-theatrical environments. By integrating the visual culture of the former Soviet Union from the 1950s to '70s into the traditional lexicon of art history, their work addresses universal ideas of utopia, fantasy and hope, as well as fear and oppression.

The exhibition Paintings about Paintings at Dallas Contemporary and the accompanying catalogue focus on the most recent body of work, some of which never-before seen.
