Painting Our Future Together

On the occasion of the European Cooperation Day 2018, the Latvia-Lithuania-Belarus Cross-Border Cooperation Programme and Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre present the travelling exhibition “Painting Our Future Together” showcasing the artwork by 10 international artists who have drawn inspiration from the art of the world-renowned artist Mark Rothko and from the charming atmosphere of his birthplace during the 14th international painting symposium “Mark Rothko 2018” in Daugavpils, Latvia.

The name of Mark Rothko and his 115th anniversary have brought artists from seven countries to Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre to express their feelings and transform them into outstanding works of art.

Like cross-border cooperation itself, the artwork is remarkably diverse in terms of artists’ geographical backgrounds, preferred materials and techniques. Each painting reflects the artist’s individual style and perception of cooperation across borders.

Artists: Árpád Forgó (Hungary), George Meertens (Netherlands), Edeltraut Rath (Germany), Pawel Wasowski, Katarzyna Kowalska (Poland), Agra Ritiņa, Inga Brūvere (Latvia), Diana Copperwhite (Ireland), Andrew Colbert, Elizabeth Barenis (USA).
