39th EVA International
Originally scheduled as a concentrated 10 week programme, the 39th EVA International will now be delivered in three phases that will take place across various venues in Limerick city between 2020 and 2021. This approach has been developed as a practical response to the consequences of COVID-19, ensuring that EVA International upholds its commitments to artists and audiences in a way that is sensitive to ongoing public health concerns.
Phase 1 of the 39th EVA International will open on the 18th September and continue until 15th November 2020. The Phase 1 programme will include venue-based, online, and offsite presentations by artists including Bora Baboci, Yane Calovski, Eirene Efstathiou, Laura Fitzgerald, Michele Horrigan, Melanie Jackson and Esther Leslie, Áine McBride, Emily McFarland, Eimear Walshe, Driant Zeneli, and Women Artists Action Group (Archive of Pauline Cummins).
Venues include Limerick City Gallery of Art, The Hunt Museum, the Sailor’s Home. All venues will be subject to protocols to ensure the safety and well-being of the visiting public, adhering to current government guidelines for cultural venues.
Full details of the Phase 1 programme will be released in August 2020, with details of Phase 2 and Phase 3 released in early 2021.
