Ireland’s biennial of contemporary art, EVA International, has selected Colombian curator Inti Guerrero to curate its 38th edition in 2018.

Since its inception in 1977, EVA International has worked with guest curators every two years to generate a 12-week program of exhibitions and events that engages with the city and people of Limerick, where it is held. Projects for Ireland’s Biennial will be selected this year through an international open call for proposals that will be launched in September.

Guerrero is currently curator of Latin American Art for the Tate in London. After studying History and Theory of Art and Architecture at the University of Los Andes in Colombia and the University of São Paulo in Brazil, Guerrero became a fellow at De Appel’s Curatorial Programme in Amsterdam.

He previously served as Associate Artistic Director and Curator at TEOR/éTica, a not-for-profit art space in Costa Rica.

Guerrero has a diverse portfolio, having curated exhibitions at Tate Modern (London), Para Site (Hong Kong), the Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo-MAMSP (São Paulo), MARCO (Vigo), FRAC-Lorraine (Metz), Minsheng Musuem (Shanghai), Kadist (San Francisco), Carrillo Gil Art Museum (Mexico City), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo (Torino), Museum of Art of Rio-MAR (Rio de Janeiro), CA2M (Madrid), among other institutions in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. His writings have also been published in Afterall, ArtNexus, Metropolis MNero, Manifesta Journal, and Ramona, among other publications.

Guerrero will be taking over from Koyo Kouoh, who curated this year’s Biennial and was featured on artnet news’ list of game-changing female curators.

Director and CEO of EVA International,Woodrow Kernohan, said in a statement to the press: “We are delighted that Inti has accepted our invitation to be the Curator of the 38th edition of EVA in 2018 and very much look forward to working with him.”

Guerrero commented “I am deeply honored to have been invited to be the Curator of the 2018 edition of EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial; a groundbreaking exhibition that has contributed to reimagining internationalisms. I look forward to working with artists and the EVA team to develop the Biennial program for the city, its audiences, and continuing the dialogue with previous appointed Curators whom I hold in great regard.”

The 38th edition of EVA International will open to the public on 14 April and run until 8 July, 2018.
