Studio Talks at TBG+S are events in which member studio artists discuss their work in the familiar surroundings of their own studio. These events are informal and free of charge. They provide an opportunity for visitors to gain an insight into how particular artists work, and what interests and motivates them.

In February 2014, David Fagan will open his studio to peers and the public to offer a glimpse into his working practices. The conversation will be led by Maeve Connolly.
