Ilya & Emilia Kabakov. The Kabakovs and the Avant-Gardes at LAC
Spazio -1 presents an exhibition dedicated to the Russian artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, which sees the couple in an uncommon dialogue with artworks from the avant-gardes period, belonging to the Collezione Olgiati.
Five large-scale paintings, one sculpture and an installation of the Kabakovs are pulled together with paintings and drawings of Malevich, Kandinskij, Balla, Boccioni, Léger and others.
Beyond any chronological or genre-based division, the exhibition triggers off a temporal short-circuit, an important synthesis that tells of art and of history, of the great social and cultural systems of the past century, and of the successive fragmentation of our complex present.
