41st EVA Platform Commissions: Open Call for Artist Proposals

EVA Platform Commissions

We now welcome Platform Commission proposals for the 41st EVA International programme, which will be selected by Iarlaith Ní Fheorais and Roy Claire Potter. Selected proposals will be offered support for the realisation and presentation of new work as part of the upcoming biennial programme (August – October 2025), taking place across sites and spaces in Limerick. Although EVA’s programme is typically presented as an exhibition, we are actively encouraging proposals that go beyond the usual parameters of venue-based exhibition presentation.

** Deadline for submissions, Monday 8th April 2024, 17:00 GMT **
