Brian O'Doherty


by Ciarán Bennett

Exile has been central to the story of Irish modernism, a touchstone for Joyce and Beckett and many others. Brian O'Doherty (b. 1928) came to New York in the 1950s as a medical doctor, but once he was caught up in the art world he became an influential critic, teacher, arts administrator and artist.
