You are warmly invited to Curating Partnerships, a roundtable discussion event exploring new curatorial strategies and models of collaboration. Responding to a set of agreed questions, the international panel will speak about their experiences of working in partnership and discuss new developments.

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: [email protected].

Curating Partnerships is a partnership development initiative led by Limerick City Arts Office in conjunction with eva International and Limerick City Gallery of Art, and is part of the celebrations of Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union and The Gathering. The Arts Council participation in the Cultural Programme to mark Ireland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

Limerick City Arts Office provides support and advice to the local arts community, promoting an inclusive and coordinated approach to arts provision in the city.

eva International, Biennial of Visual Art, works with acclaimed guest curators to present innovative exhibitions across the city of Limerick, Ireland.

Limerick City Gallery of Art is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Ireland and home to an important collection of Irish 18th to 21st century art in all media.
