EVA International is Ireland’s biennial of contemporary art. Every two years EVA works with guest curators to create a 12-week programme of exhibitions and events that engages with the people and city of Limerick. Since being founded in 1977, EVA has worked with 2,098 artists and 41 curators from around the world, bringing innovative exhibitions and international audiences to the west of Ireland.
EVA International leads and champions the curation, commissioning, production and exhibiting of contemporary art by Irish and international artists in Limerick. Currently working towards the 2018 and 2020 editions of the biennial, EVA aims to strengthen its resources, to grow new audiences and to make EVA a vital event on the national and international art calendar.
EVA International is seeking a new Director who, building on the success achieved by outgoing Director Woodrow Kernohan, will lead and significantly grow the scale and ambition of Ireland’s Biennial. This is a unique opportunity to make a major contribution to the development and vision of a leading international contemporary art exhibition as it moves into its 40th year.
The new Director will have overall responsibility for all aspects of EVA International’s work, including biennial programmes, finances, operations, communications, fundraising, and representing the organization in diverse local, national and international contexts.
