Temple Bar Gallery + Studios presents Ireland’s only art book fair, celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2020. Dublin Art Book Fair platforms creative and cutting-edge publishers, big and small, Irish and international. It is a centre for the contemporary artist book and includes a section of specially curated book titles. DABF has evolved into a significant crossdisciplinary meeting ground, reaching out to peer organisations in the city and lesser-known museums, collections, and galleries. In the relaxed and stimulating environment of Temple Bar Gallery, discover a unique selection of books on art, architecture, visual culture, philosophy, design and select fiction, enjoy a coffee and engage in a free curated programme of talks, tours, workshops and discussions.
