Four artists have been awarded studio spaces at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (TBG+S). Project Studios have been awarded to artists Aisling McCoy, Alice Rekab, Myrid Carten and Tamsin Snow for the year 2018.
Project Studios offer a one year tenure and are generally awarded to artists at an earlier point in their career. Each year, TBG+S provides excellent workspaces for thirty artists to work in Dublin city. The work made in the studios often goes on to be exhibited throughout the world. As well as studio space, TBG+S offers the artists professional development opportunities such as studio visits from international visiting curators and artists.
The new artist members were awarded their studios by a selection panel, following an open submission application process which took place in October 2017. This year, the selection panel for studio membership consisted of Rayne Booth (Programme Curator, TBG+S), Clíodhna Shaffrey (Director, TBG+S), Marie-Anne McQuay (Head of Programme, Bluecoat) and Alan Phelan (TBG+S Studio Member).
