Submissions are invited from individual artists or groups for inclusion in the 36th edition of eva International, 12 April – 6 July 2014, curated by Bassam El Baroni. Submissions can be in any medium and can be for the presentation of existing works or production of new projects. The online application process is now open and submissions can be made at any time up until the open call closes at 5pm Monday 2 September 2013.
Artists can make up to 2 proposals and there is a submission fee of €20 for 1 proposal or €30 for 2 proposals. eva International is a not-for-profit organization where submission fees support selected artists and contribute directly to artists’ production, travel, accommodation, transportation and exhibition budgets.
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.”
