The National Arts Club Presents Emilia and Ilya Kabakov’s ‘A Model Point of View’, a month long celebration of the iconic husband and wife artists.

The free exhibition runs from November 3rd to November 29th and will feature drawings and models from the pair widely regarded as some of the world’s top-ten greatest living artists, and the foremost artists to emerge from the Soviet Union.

In the Grand Gallery, drawings and models of realized installations, all but one that have never been seen before in New York, will illustrate the construction of the artistic creations and how they complement and correspond to specific geographic locations. The works reflect freedom and social paradigms, and may at appear unrealistic, but cannot help but encourage the viewer to return to the pieces to analyze and form their own opinion of a utopian society.

The Kabakov’s boast an extensive body of work that speaks to the conditions in post-Stalinist Russia as well as the universal human condition. With work found in major collections throughout the world including the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, much of the Kabakov’s success comes from using everyday themes to construct mythical worlds that encourage the viewer to contemplate their own view of society.

The free four-week exhibition will reintroduce the American art lover to these masters with a finely curated show.
