EVA International and IMMA are delighted to have developed a new commissioning partnership Encounters, with artist Em’kal Eyongakpa. The commission has seen two of Ireland’s most significant contemporary arts organisations work together with Em’kal Eyongakpa on a major artistic production between the sites of Limerick and Dublin. The commission has been developed and presented collaboratively, coinciding with the 39th EVA International taking place in Limerick throughout October and November 2021, and a presentation at IMMA from May until August 2022.
As organisations with international reach and distinct profile within a national context, the partnership between IMMA and EVA seeks to raise the horizon of opportunity for the commission and production of ambitious large-scale artworks in Ireland, with a focus on thinking beyond the ‘exhibitionary’ encounter of contemporary art. The Encounters partnership 2020 – 2022 has been made possible with the generous support of Mondriaan Fund.
