For eva International 2012, Curator Annie Fletcher activated a network of national and international partnerships, developing a series of platforms to showcase the vibrant artistic scene in Ireland and beyond. Organizations such as Project Art Centre (Dublin), The Israeli Center for Digital Art (Tel Aviv, Israel), Visual Artists Ireland (Dublin), Gracelands (Leitrim) and Static Gallery (Liverpool, UK) all created aspects of the exhibitions and events programme that extended the scale and scope of eva International 2012. Curating Partnerships grew out of these intense partnerships and the current and urgent need to pool resources, share expertise and work more dynamically.

This event is free and open to the public but numbers are limited. To reserve a place, please contact rsvp@curating-partnerships.org.
