Temple Bar Gallery and Studios
Since its inception thirty years ago, Temple Bar Gallery has been instrumental in solidifying Temple Bar’s status as a vibrant, cultural nexus in Dublin City. Once an industrial building, Temple Bar Gallery has been transformed into one of the city’s most exciting contemporary art spaces, with a programme of exhibitions committed to showcasing the best in Irish contemporary art. Its floor-to-ceiling windows, which showcase the exhibitions inside, often pique the interest of passersby on the street, but to truly experience the space, you must step inside. While the types of exhibitions housed in the space encompass everything from installations to exhibitions with political statements at their centre, there is an ambitious, creative pulse to be found beating in each one. A visit to Temple Bar Art Gallery will provoke thought and curiousity, and is essential for anyone who wishes to experience quality contemporary art with an Irish bent.
