Phase 2 of the 39th EVA International programme opens from 2 July – 22 August 2021. It features 14 presentations by Irish and international artists and collaborating curators, across venues in Limerick, remotely and online. Taking its reference from the “Golden Vein,” a 19th-century descriptor for the agricultural bounty of the Limerick region, the 39th EVA International programme seeks to address ideas of land and its contested values in the context of Ireland today.
