OPENING OF THREE NEW EXHIBITIONS ON 3 SEPTEMBER
Three profoundly different art projects create a new, autumnal atmosphere in the Rothko Centre’s exhibition rooms. Not the gloom and doom associated with the inevitable onset of winter, but an expectant anticipation of the golden days ahead, an evocative ambience that transforms visual imagery into an almost poetic experience and calls us to review the moments of significance that might have slipped our attention in the hectic days of summer. These moments set off trains of emotion and trigger a calm aesthetic appreciation that may become food for thought and conversation on a still autumnal evening.
Danish artists Vibeke Glarbo and Hjördis Haack have prepared a joint exhibition “Behind the Longing”.
“Tea Time” celebrates the art of Skaidrīte Cihovska, a distinguished Latvian ceramicist.
To commemorate the distinguished Latgale artist and long-term art educator Silva Veronika Linarte (1939–2018) and her creative legacy, painters Elga Grīnvalde (Latvia), Eimutis Markūnas (Lithuania), Petra Heitkötter (Germany), Anna Szprynger (Poland) and Zigurds Poļikovs (Latvia) came together in a painting symposium that bears her name.
The new exhibitions at Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre will remain on show until 17 October 2021.
