Opening on 4 September 2020 and continuing until 15 November 2020, the 39th EVA International will present a programme of artist commissions, exhibition presentations, and educational projects across venues in Limerick city and beyond.
The 39th EVA International programme is being developed in reference to the ‘Golden Vein’, a 19th century descriptor for the bountiful pastures of the Limerick / Tipperary region in the mid-West of Ireland (more commonly referred today as ‘Golden Vale’). The reference belongs to the historical perspective of seeing the land as a resource to be tapped, exploited, and commercialised through industrialised agricultural production and global trade. The Golden Vein is the starting point for thinking through ideas of land and its contested values within the context of Ireland today.
EVA would like to hear from individuals interested in shaping the future of contemporary art in Ireland, who are willing to give time, energy, and vision to the organisation at an exciting time in its development
