“The Gleaners Society” 40th EVA International guest programme at Ormston House
Ormston House is pleased to extend our public opening hours from 12-9pm as part of Culture Night 2023. Visitors can enjoy a late viewing of the 40th EVA International guest programme The Gleaners Society, curated by Sebastian Cichocki.
Curated by Sebastian Cichocki, the Guest Programme of the 40th EVA International takes its thematic basis on the idea and practice of gleaning – a term that traditionally refers to the act of collecting leftover crops following a harvest. The Gleaners Society extends this reference in a multiple of ways, alternately serving as an artistic subject, a political metaphor, and a curatorial methodology to explore and propose art’s relationship to society. Featuring over 45 presentations by Irish and international artists and collectives, The Gleaners Society will unfold across a set of uniquely diverse venues in Limerick city (civic arts institutions, a primary school, a Cathedral, and a vegetarian cafe, among others).
The exhibition will feature artworks by Slavs and Tatars, Léann Herlihy, John Carson, Jeamin Cha, Thomond Primary School Gardening Club in collaboration with Deirdre O’Mahony and Hometree, Janet Mullarney and Olga Micińska with Mathild Clerc-Verhoeven.
This location is not wheelchair accessible.
