Temple Bar Gallery and Studios
Temple Bar Gallery and Studios (TBG&S), one of Ireland's leading contemporary art venues dedicated to the promotion, presentation and mediation of contemporary visual art and to the provision of affordable studio space to artists, invites visual artists to apply to its International Studio Programme 2008/2009.
Of the thirty artists' studios at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, one is reserved for international artists while the others are allocated to Dublin-based artists on a competitive basis. The International Studio Programme at TBG&S offers an opportunity for artists based outside of Ireland to live and work in Dublin for a period of three months. The programme aims to encourage international contacts for artists and to provide artists with opportunities for researching and developing their creative practice in a Dublin context.
The International Studio Programme is open to visual artists who work in all disciplines. The international studio, the largest and best in the building, is not a residential studio. Liaison staff at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios provides assistance in locating suitable accommodation in Dublin city. The cost of the studio is 250 Euros per month.
Proposals should include a detailed plan for the use of the studio over the three month period. Applications forms are available to download from www.templebargallery.com. The closing date for receipt of applications is 26 April 2008.
