PERFORMANCE: Concert for a Fly (1988) by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov
BOOK SIGNING: Painting the Stage: Artists as Stage Designers by Denise Wendel-Poray and Painting the Stage: Ilya & Emilia Kabakov (limited edition), (above) both published by Skira.

Following the 12–1 PM panel, The Kabakovs | On Utopia, a book signing for Painting the Stage: Artists as Stage Designers by Denise Poray-Wendel will be presented in partnership with Skira. A limited edition of the publication created and signed by acclaimed Swiss architect Mario Botta, will be included in this Chicago debut. For this extraordinary tour de force of bookmaking, Botta has designed a wooden sculpture that houses a luxurious clothbound edition of Wendel-Poray's Painting the Stage: Artists as Stage Designers—a pioneering history of the relationship between opera and art—with a signed and numbered print by Ilya and Emilia Kabakov. Produced in an edition of 60 copies, it includes a print from the Kabakov's The Flies: A Musical Phantasmagoria with walnut frame.

A rendition of the Kabakov's Concert for a Fly, featuring Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's (1844–1908) Flight of the Bumblebee, will take place throughout the signing.
