Established by artists in 1983, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S) was one of the first cultural organisations rehoused by the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter regeneration in the early 1990s. Their mission is to provide subsidised workspaces to professional working artists, to present progressive and ambitious work by contemporary Irish and international visual artists and to promote the knowledge of and mediate contempoary visual art.
TBG+S is the only purpose-built gallery and artists' studios complex located in the heart of the Dublin city and is a nationally significant institution. For over a quarter of a century, TBG+S has been at the cornerstore of artistic activity in Ireland. There are thirty artists' studios to accommodate professional working artists and curators and a ground floor gallery with a dynamic programme of curated exhibitions and live events.
