Temple Bar Gallery + Studios 30th Anniversary Exhibition
03 September 2013
In 2013, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios celebrates its 30th Anniversary. The organisation was founded in 1983 by Jenny Haughton, who invited a group of artists to claim space within a semi derelict factory building in Temple Bar. Through the vision and determination of a number of individuals, over the intervening years the building was transformed into a purpose built complex of artists work spaces and a gallery. TBG+S has been a site where countless new projects, practices, friendships and careers have been created over the last 30 years.
As part of the 30th anniversary celebrations, TBG+S is producing a book entitled 'Generation – 30 years of creativity at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios', which will be available in the gallery during the exhibition.
In the exhibition False Memory Syndrome, Four artists present alternative histories for Temple Bar Gallery + Studios . These artists were invited, because of their history with TBG+S, to exhibit art works that respond to the gathered research for the publication, and to their experiences of the building and its inhabitants.
