AGITATIONISM, the 36th edition of EVA International, will simulate the struggle between the tides that pull the present towards romanticisations, utopias, ideologies, and nostalgias; and the tides that attempt to push it beyond those limitations and towards an unknown, a desire for something that remains too complex to determine today.
EVA 2014 features works by 56 international artists, selected from over 2,000 proposals by artists in 96 countries, including new commissions by: Doa Aly, Kjersti Andvig, Martí Anson, Ann Böttcher, +billion- (James Merrigan), GRRRR (Ingo Giezendanner), Rana Hamadeh, David Horvitz, Luis Jacob, Mona Marzouk, Asier Mendizabal, Metahaven, Nástio Mosquito, Seamus Nolan, Mark O’Kelly, Garrett Phelan, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Praneet Soi, Paul Tarpey, Humberto Vélez.
AGITATIONISM is part of Limerick City of Culture 2014 and three projects have been developed specially for the City of Culture celebrations: EVA and City of Culture are working in partnership with Kerry Group to transform the vast former Golden Vale Milk Plant on O’Callaghan Strand, Limerick into a bespoke exhibition space; EVA and Limerick City Gallery of Art will host a pre-congress visit by IKT, the International Association of Curators of Contemporary Art; and Humberto Vélez has been commissioned to create a unique participative event at Limerick Greyhound Stadium.
