The exhibition “Lines” in the collection of Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Center can be called a research project, the focus of which is the study of line definitions and the discovery of their meanings in works of art.

In the artistic concept of the exhibition, the line is not only an element of the visual art language, seeing lines, curves, breaks, verticals, horizontals or intersections in the works of art. It is also a reflection of systems of ideas and values ​​in art, pointing to spiritual dimensions, kinship, fragile boundaries and parallels. It’s basically a game. An artist’s game with materials and techniques based on experience, emotions and skills. Interaction of the viewer with each work of art, close to discoveries and rooted in self-knowledge.

The exhibition features works by artists recognized both in Latvia and internationally from the collection of the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Center, which, thanks to the diversity of art media, diversifies and mutually complements the content of the exhibition. The exhibition consists of more than 20 works of art – paintings and objects.
