EVA 2012 is titled After the Future and this theme is intended to encourage us to take stock of the present and resist the many false notions of progress for an unreachable future. Many of the featured works dotted around the city adapt this theme in a variety of creative finishes. The return of Construction X celebrates its own Limerick memory and in choosing it for reconstruction the curator balances demands for the new with something that, in its own history, still has something to give.
Construction X is now the meeting place for the second Art for Art’s Sake tour which takes place at 12.00 pm on Saturday the 14th of July. Led by Limerick Artist Orlaigh Tracey this popular walking guided tour will include EVA International venues such as 103 O’Connell St. and The Belltable. It will also tour other gallery spaces in the city such as Ormston House.
