Commenting on the curatorial approach for eva International 2014, El Baroni said:

“I would like the 36th eva International 2014 to be reflective of the many complex questions that the current heightened global political moment raises. Are we witnessing the continuing dominance of old political narratives? While these old narratives may be slowly showing signs of cracking, what are the obstacles facing the emergence of new narratives? Rather than being any kind of curatorial concept, this statement is intended solely as a hint at a direction that will evolve and nuance as the project develops.”

Founded in 1977, eva International is an artist-centred biennial of contemporary art that works with acclaimed guest curators to present exhibitions and events across the city of Limerick, Ireland. eva International 2014 is the 36th edition and will be part of Limerick City of Culture 2014 celebrations. Artists’ projects will be selected through an international open call for proposals and exhibitions will take place in both gallery and non-gallery spaces. A programme of talks, workshops and events will accompany the biennial and the open call for proposals includes opportunities for artists’ projects that engage with the city and its communities.
