Tessa Giblin


Tessa Giblin joined Talbot Rice Gallery as Director in November 2016. She is Commissioner and Curator of Ireland at the Venice Biennale 2017, with the artist Jesse Jones. From 2006 – 2016 she was Curator of Visual Arts at Project Arts Centre, Dublin where she curated and led the visual arts program within a busy multi-disciplinary arts centre, consisting of two theatres and a gallery. In 2015 she was Guest Curator of the steirischer herbst festival exhibition, Graz, Austria, where she presented the group exhibition ‘Hall of Half-Life‘ over four venues. At Project Arts Centre she curated numerous solo and group exhibitions, including ‘Riddle of the Burial Grounds‘ which toured to Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp in 2016, and made commissioning new work a hallmark of her exhibitions. Tessa Giblin now lives in Edinburgh with her family. She was raised in Christchurch, New Zealand, where she attended Canterbury University School of Fine Arts, and began her curatorial formation through the network of artist-run spaces across Aotearoa/New Zealand.
