Still (the) Barbarians: A Symposium
Tue, 12 Jul 2016, 18:00 – Wed, 13 Jul 2016, 18:00 IST
EVA International is pleased to announce the dates for the Still (the) Barbarians: Symposium. On the evening of 12 July and all day on 13 July, EVA International welcomes Koyo Kouoh and keynote speaker Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith, among other speakers, artists and performers, who will explore how artists respond to postcolonial legacies.
2016 is a meaningful year for Ireland as it marks the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising, a moment of great significance in the struggle for liberation from British colonial rule. Responding to the context of the centenary, EVA International 2016 curated by Koyo Kouoh is entitled Still (the) Barbarians and investigates the post-colonial condition of Ireland as a point of departure from where artistic reflections, critical redefinitions and political transformations are articulated.
Location: Limerick City
Dates: 12 and 13 July
