Brian O'Doherty - Self, Sign, Scenario

”Ogham” is an ancient Gaelic alphabet that Brian O’Doherty has been using since the 1960s. It serves as an ideal serial system that allows him to bring together minimalism, concept art and language. In his second exhibition in the gallery O'Doherty will be showing drawings and sculpture as well as a series of new paintings, many of which are based on Ogham.

Brian O’Doherty (*1928) lives and works in New York. His essay "Inside the White Cube" appeared in 1976. Until 2008 he worked as an artist under the pseudonym Patrick Ireland. In 2014 his latest novel, The Crossdresser's Secret, was published.
