A new show entitled “The Study of Kabakov” just opened at Edelman Arts Inc. (136 East 74th Street, New York, New York). The exhibition is a collection of the artists’ works on paper, printed reproductions of three albums (the unique medium pioneered by Ilya Kabakov in the 1970s) from the “Ten Characters” series, as well as numerous scholarly books, countless interviews and sketchbooks for many of the installations. “The Study of Kabakov” also marks the premiere of Kabkov’s drawings and works on paper in the United States – they have otherwise not been exhibited anywhere in the country.
