Ilya & Emilia Kabakov : Concert for a Fly (Chamber Music)

15 Sep 2017–11 Nov 2017


Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to present the installation Concert for a Fly (Chamber Music), 1986, by pioneer conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. Russianborn and American-based, today they are recognised as among the most significant international artists to have emerged in the late 20th century. Concert for a Fly (Chamber Music) is a historic installation, first exhibited in 1986 in Switzerland at the Neue Galerie, Dierikon, then in 1992 at the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art and at the Kölnisher Kunstverein, Cologne. It forms part of an overall series of ten installations, where each represents a character. Exhibited in the gallery’s 18th century Ely Room, the work, with a musical arrangement by Joseph Morag, is given renewed relevance.
