Since the late eighties the acclaimed conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov have created fantastical spaces that they call ‘total’ installations inviting viewers to immerse themselves in stories about utopian dreams. The use of common objects – things which help to create an atmosphere of memory – is a key instrument in their work; they incorporate such objects in their walkable room installations, which become something like a personal museum for the “little man”.

Concert for a Fly

The Kabakovs present a new iteration of Concert for a Fly, a string orchestra performance and sculpture work centered around the conductor: a fly hanging from the ceiling. This performance will enact a piece by composer Dmitri Shostakovich (1906–1975), entitled Quartet No. 3 in F major, Op. 73.

There will be two performances - 11:30 am and 1:00 pm.
