"Everywhere we look and everything we read right now seems to tell us we
are at a new juncture. We are at an unprecedented moment of change –
whether teetering on the edge of a financial precipice, or witnessing
extraordinary new articulations of protest. This year eva International
will attempt to tap into this feeling of imminence by understanding how
artists define and explain the status quo in relation to global events.
What are we on the verge of? How do artists envisage what is to come and
what is to be done?"
Annie Fletcher, Curator of eva International 2012.
eva International and Annie Fletcher would like to invite artists from
all over the world to propose new or existing works for inclusion in eva
International 2012. Proposals can be made in any medium and selected
artists will be supported to produce new or show existing works in
Limerick City, Ireland from 19 May – 12 August 2012.
Proposals should be made through the online submission process. Artists
can make up to 2 proposals and there is a submission fee of €20 for 1
proposal or €30 for 2 proposals. Supporting materials can either be
uploaded through the online submission process, sent by post to Limerick
City Gallery of Art, or delivered by hand to Limerick City Gallery of
Art or Fire Station Artists’ Studios, Dublin. Deadline: 31 January 2012.
