The Palace of Projects

About the Exhibition

The Palace of Projects, created by husband and wife Ilya (b.1933, Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) and Emilia Kabakov (b.1945, Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine), is a spiraling architectural structure forty feet high and eighty feet in diameter. The nautilus-shaped Palace is constructed of a wood frame covered with stretched, white translucent fabric. Visitors walk through the Palace to explore more than 65 individual "projects" that provide entertaining and engaging suggestions for improving oneself and the world. The Palace of Projects is an archive of utopian ideas and stories told by fictional Soviet citizens. The "projects" include maquettes, paintings, and writings that propose remedies for the challenges of daily life and suggestions for personal growth and improvement.
