Limerick Greyhound Stadium


Greenpark, Dock Rd, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • This stadium opened in 2010 and was designed by Hamilton Architects. It features a racing track for greyhound dogs, a restaurant, bars and the headquarters for the Irish Greyhound Board.
  • The site was one of four listed venues for the 36th edition of EVA in 2014, curated by Bassam El Baroni (b. 1974, Egypt) and titled AGITATIONISM.
  • Artist Humberto Vélez (b. 1965, Panama) developed a collaborative performance and event for the opening weekend of EVA, titled The Underdog (2014).
  • A central component to the project was the ‘EVA International Cup 2014’, a special race that renamed competing dogs as a playful critique on art, history, and society. The names given to these racing dogs were: Traditional Family, The Rose of Tralee, Morally Superior, I Have a Dream, Art is Money, No Irish No Black No Dogs. The winner of the marathon was Art is Money.
  • The project was documented and screened as part of the EVA exhibition at the Cleeve’s venue.
