"The International Latgale Graphic Art Symposium has developed into a fine tradition that draws graphic artists to Daugavpils. Having become a meeting place, a discussion forum and stimulating creative environment in the cultural landscape of Latgale, it attracts Latvian and international graphic artists with similar and opposing views on the use of their preferred medium," said organizers.
The symposium has had a specific thematic emphasis, focusing on the city of Daugavpils and its surroundings and inviting the artists to capture the unique atmosphere of the vast Daugavpils Fortress.
The 2020 symposium brought together ten outstanding graphic artists from nine countries: Víctor Manuel Hernández Castillo (Mexico), Irena Lawruszko (Ukraine), Piotr Skowron (Poland), Imants Haņeckis (Latvia), Elisa Pellizzari (Italy), Jevgenija Jones (Lithuania), Lorenzo Davitti (Italy), Kalli Kalde (Estonia), Ioannis Anastasiou (Greece) and Elizabeth Rose (USA).
The exhibition will run until 12 April 2020.
