Press Release of Ireland Pavilion of 58° Biennale of Venice

The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan today announced the selection of artist, Eva Rothschild and Curator, Mary Cremin to represent Ireland at the 58th Venice Art Biennale in 2019.

The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan today, Monday 23rd April, announced the selection of artist, Eva Rothschild with Mary Cremin as curator to represent Ireland at the 58th Venice Art Biennale in 2019.

The Venice Arts Biennale is one of the most important international stages for the visual arts, attracting over half a million visitors. The selection of the team to represent Ireland was made following an open competitive process with international jury members. Ireland at Venice is a partnership initiative of Culture Ireland and the Arts Council.

The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Josepha Madigan said “The Venice Biennale serves as a global showcase for artists and offers a prominent platform for Eva Rothschild as the selected Irish artist to engage with international audiences, curators and gallerists and increase international opportunities and awareness of our strong visual arts sector. I wish Eva and curator Mary Cremin every success in developing their exhibition for the Biennale”.

Eva Rothschild has proposed a pavilion that will build on current dialogues around notions of precarity, environmental change and the ongoing political instability - and how that impacts us personally. Through her use of materials and sculptures she will create an immersive environment that asks the audience to question what our role is as global citizens and how do we affect change in the current political stage.

Eva Rothschild; ‘I am delighted and honoured to have been chosen to represent Ireland at Venice 2019, I look forward to working closely with Mary Cremin and the team at Void to develop the pavilion. My intention is to make a sculptural environment which engages with current social changes through embodiment, presence and materiality. I want to create a situation that suggests multiple sculptural possibilities for rearrangement and reordering in which it becomes difficult to distinguish renewal from collapse’.

Commissioner/Curator for Ireland at Venice 2019, Mary Cremin, is Director, Void Gallery in Derry~Londonderry, which will be supporting the delivery of the exhibition. Cremin says, ‘Eva Rothschild is a significant artist of international and national importance. I am very excited and honoured to be working with her on the Irish Pavilion for the Venice Biennale in 2019. We will be supported by the fantastic team at Void Gallery. This project will be one of Ireland’s most exciting and visually dynamic pavilions, highlighting the strength and diversity of Irish artistic practice and build on the existing reputation of Irish artists internationally’.
