Bulatov – Kabakov: Dialogues
Stanislavsky Electrotheatre and the Center for Contemporary Art present:
The artist’s children’s book as a radical art object.
September 2018 marks anniversaries for two patriarchs of modern Russian culture - Ilya Kabakov and Erik Bulatov. Each is 85 years old. The work of these artists is a symbol of Russian contemporary art, combining figurative and textual meanings in contemporary optics. The artistic strategies of Ilya Kabakov and Eric Bulatov preserve the visual and semantic experience of the classical Russian avant-garde, but also introduce the energy of reflexive European culture in their imagery. This exhibit presents children's books of the 1970s to 1990s with illustrations by Kabakov and Bulatov, a video interview with the artists, unique archival records, and Kabakov's famous albums Komarov Who Flew Away and Poignant Surikov.
Free admission; the exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
