About the Artist

Ilya Kabakov 1933–2023

Ilya Kabakov was one of the most influential artists to have emerged from the former Soviet Union. Since his move to the West in 1987 he became a leading figure in installation art. Kabakov’s practice combines drawings, paintings and found objects to form complex installations which reflect the social, historical and political forces which shaped his life and work. He created installations in venues worldwide including MoMA, New York, the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington and the Pompidou Centre, Paris. Together with his wife Emilia, Kabakov created a large site specific installation at IMMA in 1999.
