Brian O’Doherty

Brian O’Doherty’s work consists of objects, drawings and in-situ installations. He investigates limits of perception, language, serial systems and identity, seeking to engage viewers’ minds as well as their senses. O’Doherty invented several personae and worked as an artist under the pseudonym „Patrick Ireland“ from 1972 until 2008.

With his essay „Inside the White Cube“ from 1976 Brian O‘Doherty became a key figure in the discourse around the presentation of contemporary art.

Brian O’Doherty (born in 1928) lives in New York.
