Brian O’Doherty

Brian O’Doherty (b. 1928, Ireland) has had a remarkable and multifaceted career as artist, critic, novelist, and more. After working as a medical doctor and researcher in the UK, O’Doherty relocated to the US, where he hosted two network television shows on art; held posts as critic for the New York Times and editor of Art in America; edited and designed the groundbreaking “conceptual issue” of the multimedia magazine-in-a-box Aspen, a touchstone for Triple Canopy; authored the seminal essay series Inside the White Cube; and, as a director for the NEA visual arts and media programs, helped make Soho a magnet for artists, coining the term “alternative space” and championing early video art. From 1972 to 2008, he worked as an artist under the pseudonym Patrick Ireland. To date, he has mounted over forty solo exhibitions including a recent retrospective at NYU’s Grey Art Gallery (2007). O’Doherty is the author of several novels, including The Deposition of Father McGreevy (2000), which earned him a nomination for the Booker Prize.
