Mason Hayes & Curran holds a proud tradition of supporting the arts and TBG+S has played a pivotal role in the development of visual arts in Ireland over the past 30 years.
TBG+S is a gallery and artists’ studios complex located in the heart of Dublin and the Temple Bar cultural quarter. TBG+S provides affordable studio space to over 40 artists annually and through its vibrant programme of exhibitions and events.
Generation, meaning both a period of approximately 30 years and the act or process of generating, origination and production, will be the central theme for the 30th anniversary celebrations. TB+G’s programme for the year features work by compelling Irish and International artists, including newly commissioned work by artists Seamus Nolan and Priscila Fernandes, group exhibitions curated by Chris Fite Wassilak, Rayne Booth and Mark O’Kelly, and a special exhibition to mark the 30th anniversary of TBG+S.
