During Sept 11-22 Sept 2017 Anthony White was obviously a participant within the International Ar2rk Symposium on the Mark Rothko Art Center in Latvia.
The particular Symposium attracts from each international plus European-based performers and will occur at the Indicate Rothko Ar2rk Centre in the Arsenale Castle, in Daugavpils, Latvia – the town associated with Rothko’s delivery.
The particular residency on the Mark Rothko Art Center provides performers with a exclusive opportunity to take part in a transcultural experience to be able to critically build relationships ideas main to Subjective Expressionist visible arts exercise and ideas. The conference, seminar provides a room to explore plus debate the particular role plus purpose of modern art.
The particular residency plus symposium permit time and supply a suitable for farming environment inside which to create new some ideas and works, while also sharing his practise with new audiences and fellow artists.
2 works created by White during the residency will be acquired by the Mark Rothko Art Centre and displayed in the permanent collection.
White’s recent work considers collision points, shifts and ruptures at the site of geopolitical and cultural boundaries, particularly with regards to global immigration crises. Echoing Edward Said’s identification of “the inextricable links” between Modernism, war and immigration, White’s works are often characterised by a knowledge of surface and a preoccupation with physicality and the found object.
A dominant area of research in their work is involved with the sensation of Empires and the task of queries such as: Just how do empires create narratives to advertise and pass on ideology? Exactly how are ideas of possession tied to the European perspective? And how may visual performers engage with organizations meaningfully while addressing problems?
The functions made throughout the symposium really are a direct a reaction to my resided experience within Europe, with a more refined level within dialogue with all the place, the particular reflections upon Rothko themself and his usage of colour as being a vehicle to think about deeper facets of humanity. Associated with particular attention to me will be the sense one particular gets through his functions about the natural relationship among his usage of colour plus notions associated with human legal rights. What drew me to the Centre was to analyze how Rothko gave equal importance to both painting as a physical endeavour, as well as a philosophical enquiry.
As a contemporary cultural art centre, the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre hosts exhibitions dedicated to Mark Rothko’s ar2rk and biography. The Centre has a schedule of rotating exhibitions featuring well-known international and national artists, in addition to historical and social history exhibitions.
The ultimate symposium exhibition, including White’s work, will open at the Mark Rothko Art Centre, Daugavpils, on 22 September 2017.
