Visual arts
The 39th EVA International - Ireland's largest visual arts event - presents a programme of artist commissions, exhibitions, and education projects by leading Irish and International artists, taking place across venues in Limerick city and beyond.

Opening on 18 September 2020 and continuing until 15 November 2020, Phase 1 of the 39th EVA International will present a programme of artist commissions, presentations, and education projects across venues in Limerick city and beyond. The programme will include an exhibition curated by Istanbul-based curator Merve Elveren, presented alongside a number of commissions and projects initiated by EVA and collaborating partners.

The 39th EVA International programme is being developed in reference to the ‘Golden Vein’, a 19th century descriptor for the bountiful pastures of the Limerick / Tipperary region in the mid-West of Ireland (more commonly referred today as ‘Golden Vale’). The reference belongs to the historical perspective of seeing the land as a resource for industrialised agricultural production and global trade, and serves as a starting point for thinking through artistic ideas of land and its values within the context of Ireland today.
