Temple Bar Gallery & Studios is one of Ireland's leading contemporary art venues. Centrally located in Temple Bar, Dublin's designated Cultural Quarter, TBG&S is a publicly funded, non profit making organisation which hosts a high profile programme of Irish and international art. This programme includes the work of both established and emerging artists working in a wide range of media and has in the last two years featured such artists as Mariele Neudecker, Ene-Liis Semper, Mark Raidpere, iga Kariz, Miha Strukelj, A K Dolven, Malachi Farrell, Jesper Just, Ceal Floyer, and Fredrich Kunath.
TBG&S was established by artists in 1983 in response to the increasing demands for affordable studio spaces in Dublin city centre, a move which proved to be crucial in consolidating Temple Bar's status as Dublin's cultural quarter. In the mid-nineties a new gallery and studio complex was custom designed for the company by leading Irish architects McCullough / Mulvin and today the building that houses TBG&S integrates a gallery with on-street access, an impressive atrium space and 30 artists' studios. The use of these studios reflects the broad-ranging developments in contemporary practice as artists working with photography, video, sound, sculpture, print and painting all currently occupy spaces at TBG&S.
