Temple Bar Gallery + Studios are pleased to present a listening event featuring spoken audio content selected by studio artist David Fagan

Information gleaned from a wide range of radio programming sources helps shape David Fagan’s practice. Pulled together from the last twelve months of listening (during his tenure in studio 8 at TBG+S) he has compiled a playlist of examples from around the world which have proven relevant to his work. This event offers Fagan the opportunity to make communal what is, for him, an interesting and entertaining yet solitary act. All are welcome to attend this free event, but places are limited. Please book by clicking here.

David Fagan is a visual artist who has been based at TBG+S for the past year, having been awarded a one-year project studio in 2014. Working through performance, video and installation, Fagan creates works that interrogate methods of human communication, and the depiction of time and distance. His works investigate the nature of communication to find points at which a system such as television can mimic lived experience. The resulting works are often temporary and ephemeral in nature.

Fagan graduated from The National College of Art and Design in 2011 with a joint BA in Sculpture and History of Art. He was the 2013/14 recipient of Temple Bar Gallery & Studios Graduate Studio Residency and was also awarded a Project Studio Award for 2014. In 2013 Fagan was the recipient of South Dublin County Council’s Individual Artist Bursary Award. He has shown work at Project Arts Centre, The LAB, RUA RED, Catalyst Arts, Temple Bar Gallery & Studios [Re-Turn], and with Basic Space at the Irish Museum of Modern Art.

In April of this year Fagan will open He Saw the World and Was Left Wanting – a solo exhibition, curated by Emer Lynch, at Siamsa Tíre, Tralee
