Commissioning Circle

The Commissioning Circle supports Irish and international artists reach their full ambition for exhibitions at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. It supports the production of new work and experimentation. A €1,000 donation to the Commissioning Circle goes directly into production budgets of our exhibitions.

TBG+S presents five innovative contemporary art exhibitions each year. Irish artists of immense promise and highly-acclaimed international artists are invited to exhibit. The exhibitions give talented artists a platform at pivotal points for experimentation and development of new work. Exhibiting at TBG+S often marks a cornerstone in the career path of Irish visual artists and the work of international artists of acclaim is regularly introduced to audiences here for the first time.

Exhibiting artists at TBG+S are selected through comprehensive research and studio visits undertaken by the Programme Curator in conjunction with the Director. A Curatorial Panel of artists and Board members, alongside the Director and Programme Curator, input into the Exhibition Policy through discursive quarterly meetings.

Commissioning Circle supporters will be individually named and invited to previews of the exhibitions they have helped to fund.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, as a registered charity, is eligible to claim tax relief on donations of €250 or more. That’s €449.28 on every €1,000 donated, or a total of €1,449.28, effectively increasing the impact of your donation. Click here for more information on the Charitable Donation Scheme.
