In September 2008 Ilya and Emilia Kabakov will launch a large “retrospective” exhibition project in Moscow. This exhibition will be the largest project in Russia by these famous Russian artists, whose names are regularly listed in the top ten of world’s best artists ratings and exhibited in its most prominent museums and prestigious venues. Many international awards have expressed the recognition of Ilya Kabakov’s contribution to contemporary art, among them the Honorable Prize of Venice Biennale (1993) presented for the installation Red Pavilion, Prize of Joseph Beuys from Joseph Beuys foundation in Basel, Title of Knight of Fine Arts and Literature of France, Title of Honorary Doctor of University of Berne (2000), and many others.

"By any reckoning Kabakov's career has bridged an exceptional variety of situations and concerns," wrote Robert Storr in Art in America. "He remains better known in Europe than in America, where he now resides. His ideas and observations raise significant questions about the development and future of installation art - which remains his principal artistic form - and about our current esthetic horizons."
