AGITATIONISM: EVA International 2014

Research output: Artistic and non-textual formExhibitionArt in coproductionpeer-review

Abstract

Curated by Bassam El Baroni, EVA 2014 was titled AGITATIONISM. The exhibition sought to “grasp the sense of living under agitation while capturing how we are slowly adapting to a different perception of the world by working through our relationships with capitalism, historical ideologies, the notion of justice, the post-colonial, nonhuman beings, technology, and speculations about the future” [taken from Bassam El Baroni’s introduction to the 2014 catalogue].

Artists were selected through direct invitation and through an open call process (over 2000 proposals were received from artists from 96 countries worldwide). It included projects by 56 artists, with 21 projects being new commissions. AGITATIONISM was launched with performances by The Rubberbandits and Nástio Mosquito, with a graphic identity that was created specifically by artist Garrett Phelan.
