Anthony White is an Australian-born contemporary visual artist, based in Paris. His recent work considers collision points, shifts and ruptures at the site of geopolitical and cultural boundaries, particularly in relation 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 an awareness of surface and a preoccupation with physicality and the found object. A dominant area of research in his work has been concerned with the phenomenon of Empires: How do empires construct narratives to promote and propagate ideology? How are notions of ownership tied to (complicated by) a European point of view? And how can visual artists engage with communities whilst addressing these issues? 

Daugavpils Mark Rothko Art Centre is a multi-functional contemporary art and culture centre in Daugavpils Fortress. The only place in Eastern Europe where you have an opportunity to get acquainted with the original works of Mark Rothko, exhibitions by Latvian and foreign artists in the exhibition space of over 2000 m2. Cafe Arsenal and Souvenir shop are located inside the Art Centre.
