Angelology, a new large-scale installation by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov opens at The Model next Friday, Oct 22 from 6 – 8pm and we would be delighted if you could join us for the opening event.
Angelology takes the theme of angels our imagination and romanticisation of angels, in particular and includes paintings, sculpture and mixed-media installations that will entirely fill the galleries at The Model.
