The International Mark Rothko Painting Symposium is the most popular event in the Rothko Centre’s symposium programme. Dozens of applications come in each year, and the limited number of places makes the international jury assess each submission with extra care and attention.
This year, the panel has selected Paul Lozano (Mexico), Siddharth Pathak (India), Biljana Milenkovic (Serbia), Lihi Turjeman (Israel), Amit Kalla (India), Agata Żychlińska (Poland), Agata Magdalena Sulikowska (Poland), André Rigatti (Brasil), Mika Vesalahti (Finland), Aleksejs Naumovs (Latvia) and Bence Kala (Hungary).
"All these artists continue to develop Mark Rothko’s ideas through their individual creative prism. Their symposium output will be on show in a group exhibition to be formally opened at 4 p.m. on Friday, 16 September. Before that, everyone will be able to meet the symposium participants and ask them questions during publicly held artist presentations at the Rothko Centre’s video room at 3 p.m. on 8 and 9 September," said publicity material.
