Slovakian jewellery exhibition at the Rothko Centre

  • 2022-02-24

On 2 March, Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre opens “Echo of the Mind” – a jewellery exhibition by Slovakian artists Jana Machatová and Peter Machata.

“The artists have worked with art jewellery since the late 1990s, both separately and together. The jewellery clearly shows their shared interest in personal and collective memory and the landscape of the body. Jana and Peter are leading figures in the Slovak jewellery scene. They have built their international profiles through representation in specialised galleries, publications in print, numerous exhibitions, symposiums and workshops, including the most renowned jewellery event – Schmuck in Munich,” writes Viera Kleinová, Curator of Applied Art Collections at the Slovak National Gallery.

At 4 p.m. on 2 March, the Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre will open the exhibition with a meet-the-artists event available to the public free of charge. The exhibition will remain on show until 10 April 2022.

The project is another step for the city of Daugavpils towards the European Capital of Culture 2027.
