Ilya and Emilia Kabakov worked together as a pair of artists from their home in Long Island, New York from 1989 until Ilya's death in May 2023 at the age of 89. They are primarily known for their ambitious and immersive installations—"autonomous tableaux" placed within museum exhibition spaces, consisting of architectural elements and paintings. These installations are highly evocative, engaging the visitors visually and aurally, providing a direct and unmediated encounter with an alternate reality, largely drawn from everyday life in the post-Stalinist Soviet Union.
The lecture will cover the recent exhibition "Tomorrow We Fly," which explores the political, cultural, and generational contexts of art and its ability to contribute to change, especially in times of crisis. In the current global climate, and particularly in Israel, it clarifies the power of art to transcend the boundaries of the museum through imagination.

The painter Roni Taharlev maintains a longstanding, intimate dialogue with the human body, and especially with the female body. She explores its various aspects and engages in an in-depth study of its different dimensions, while building on her deep knowledge of the history of art from ancient Roman and Byzantine art to Renaissance, Modern and Contemporary art.
Taharlev’s multilayered oeuvre tells a story in which what is concealed remains greater than what is revealed.
A unique opportunity to hear about the exhibition from the artist herself.
