Brian O'Doherty

Born in Ireland, O’Doherty started his working life as a medical doctor. Following his emigration to the USA in 1957, he devoted himself to the visual arts and first established himself as an influential writer and critic (he is best known for his seminal essays, Inside the White Cube: The Ideology of the Gallery Space, 1976). Pioneering conceptual art from the 1960s defined his transition from writer to artist. His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. He has exhibited at the Venice Biennale, at Documenta in Kassel, Germany and in the Rosc exhibition in Dublin. His most recent exhibition in Ireland was his 50-year retrospective at the Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane in 2006. The exhibition was recently seen at the Grey Art Gallery, New York University. In 2014,  "Brian O'Doherty: Connecting the ...  "  was shown in P! Gallery in collaboration with the Simone Subal Gallery, New York.
