Temple Bar Gallery + Studios presents the ninth edition of Ireland’s only art book fair in 2019. Dublin Art Book Fair will feature a curated selection of books and publications from leading Irish and international independent publishers with a focus on visual art, architecture, visual culture and theory, poetry, and select fiction, as well as limited edition artists’ and architects’ books. Each year, DABF considers thematic ideas connected to the ‘book’ and pitches an expansive programme of free events to embrace an interdisciplinary space for visual arts, architecture, literature, and design at TBG+S and throughout the city.
For DABF 2019, artists Sean Lynch and Michele Horrigan of Askeaton Contemporary Arts and curator and academic Jo Melvin (Reader in Archives and Special Collections at Chelsea College of Arts, UAL) will curate a symposium on artist-led publishing.
TBG+S will work with a guest curator to develop the DABF Programme.
