Sep 15 - Nov 11, 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.

LAND OF LADS, LAND OF LASHES
Jun 26 - Aug 11, 2018
Private view Tue Jun 26 6pm - 8pm
Land of Lads, Land of Lashes presents, for the first time in the UK, seminal sculptures and paintings of three female artists of 1960s and 1970s Minimal and Post-Minimal art who broke the artistic boundaries of the period: Rosemarie Castoro introduced surreal and sexual connotations to the cool, mathematical rigour of Minimalism; Lydia Okumura expanded the tradition of the Brazilian geometric avant-garde with her multi-dimensional abstract environments; and Wanda Czelkowska challenged artistic traditions by fusing anthropomorphic sculpture with brutalist, industrial structures. All three artists created an avant-garde inside the avant-garde, transcending the idea of one style in favour of radical experimentation.
Guest curated by Anke Kempkes, a leading expert in the field of female avant-garde art, this landmark London exhibition spanning Ropac's entire gallery marks a further turning point at which female artists pioneered new art movements and subverted the avant-garde language of the time.
