Opening of the “Re Rag Rug” textile art exhibition

At 4 p.m. on Friday, 10 May, the Rothko Museum will open “Re Rag Rug” – an awareness-rising exhibition from an experimental textile project by the Swedish creative duo of Katarina Brieditis and Katarina Evans.

During the project, the artists challenged themselves to create twelve unique rugs over twelve months in twelve different techniques without using a loom. The Re Rag Rugs have been exhibited in Sweden, Hong Kong, the UK, France, Italy, Japan, and Australia.

The exhibition is on show at the Rothko Museum’s conference sector through 18 May 2024. During the opening event, visitors can access it free of charge.

The Re Rag Rug project was supported by The Swedish Arts Grants Committee. The Latvian exhibition has been prepared in cooperation with the Swedish Embassy in Latvia.
