Winter exhibition season starting at Rothko Centre

Take note – story published 1 year and 6 months ago

October 28 brings the launch of five new exhibitions at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre which will run for the winter season.

According to the Centre itself, they represent "five bold, bright and expressive projects that promise to quench the thirst of every visitor for light and colour in the gloomy months of autumn and approaching winter."

"The highly original project by Ukrainian artist Kolya Novikov is a sweeping retrospective that uncovers the lesser-known pages in the life book of this talented rebel artist, whose work demonstrates a strong folkloric
presence and profound awareness of ancient cultures and myths.

"Mysticism and numerous references to cultural history in contemporary form through a minimalist approach to material illuminate – quite literally – the solo exhibition of Jarosław Perszko (Poland). “Titans Dancing” is his latest experiment with the ephemeral subject of neon lights."

There is also a joint effort by eleven artists on “New Spirituality” and the meaning of sacred experiences in creative practice, understood as something personal and intimate and referring to the power residing within. 

In “Afterlife: Dying to Get There”, Estonian artist Sander Raudsepp is looking for “answers” to humanity’s eternal questions about the otherworld, summing up his thoughts on the inevitable certainty of death.

Meanwhile, “Toponyms” by Aleksejs Naumovs (Latvia) emphasises colour and brilliance as the two constant hallmarks of the artist’s style.

Besides the new season’s projects, visitors can still enjoy the Mark Rothko 2022 Painting Symposium group show featuring ten international artists.

The new exhibition season at the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre will remain on show through 19 February 2023.

The exhibitions are supported by the Daugavpils City Council and REACT-EU funding towards Europe’s post-pandemic recovery.
