Phase 1 of the 39th EVA International was the first of a three-phase exhibition programme that will unfold across venues in Limerick city and online, from September 2020 to December 2021. Phase 1 featured 12 presentations by Irish and international artists and collaborating curators, taking place across Limerick City Gallery of Art, The Hunt Museum, Sailor’s Home, Enable Ireland, EVA Offices and Archive, at outdoor locations, 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 across all phases seeks to question ideas of land and its contested values in the context of Ireland today. Through the work of the participating artists, these questions extend to broader considerations of how we relate to the land in terms of ideology, identity, and resource.
