Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to announce a new programme of talks as part of the Masterclass Series. Visiting international artists will participate in public talks and a series of sessions which engage with TBG+S Studio Artists on collective, as well as, one-to-one basis. Artists Mark Titchner, Katrina Palmer and Mike Nelson were selected and invited by TBG+S Studio Artists as artists who inspire them.

The first talk in the series features London-based artist Mark Titchner. Mark will discuss his artistic practice to date, and there will be a particular emphasis on his recent public art projects as well as his sound based artworks. Mark works with various media including digital print, wall drawings, video, sculpture and installation. His practice explores systems of belief, both secular and spiritual, often focusing on the marginalised, discredited or forgotten ideologies and objects we place our faith in. By the use of impersonal language of the public realm, ranging from the corporate mission statements to the maxims of revolutionary socialism, his work exhorts the viewer to believe in it.

In 2006 Mark was nominated for the Turner prize and his work was showcased in the Venice Biennale at the Ukraine Pavilion. He is represented by the Vilma Gold Gallery, London.
