Dublin Art Book Fair

This event has ended

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Thursday 7th December - Sunday 17th December

Dublin Art Book Fair, Ireland’s leading art book fair and centre for artist books presents its thirteenth edition. Taking place in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios over ten days, DABF champions small, creative and independent publishers, and both Irish and international artist books. Within this mix, over 500 newly published and unusual publications on art, design, visual culture, philosophy, architecture, select fiction and poetry will feature alongside a special selection of nominated books by Guest Curator Wendy Erskine.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios presents a new commissioned artwork for DABF23. I Dream of a White Gorilla by Mandy O’Neill is on view in the gallery for the duration of the fair. This work invited people to answer a series of questions about a significant ‘place' in their lives. Echoing the theme, Polyphonic, Mandy O'Neill created a collaborative artwork that brings together multiple voices, thoughts and experiences.

Dublin Art Book Fair is saluted for how it embraces arts practices, publishing and artist-run culture at the intersection of art, design, writing, contemporary culture and contemporary life.
