Brian O’Doherty ‘There Is No Thing Here But Much Else’
Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place
‘There is no thing here
but much else’
2 March – 27 May 2018
In partnership with One Here Now: The Brian O'Doherty / Patrick Ireland Project, Sirius Arts Centre.
‘There is no thing here but much else’ examines the important role that film has played in the sixty-year career of internationally renowned, New York-based Irish artist Brian O’Doherty (Patrick Ireland). The three-month screening series runs from 2 March-27 May 2018 in the Crawford Art Gallery. Taking its title from O’Doherty’s review of Patrick Ireland’s exhibition at the Charles Cowles Gallery (1990), O’Doherty playfully and succinctly critiques his alter ego’s installation.
Brian O’Doherty is a multi-faceted visual artist, critic and novelist. A pioneer in conceptual art, his ground breaking essays, Inside the White Cube are key art theory texts. Yet, O’Doherty is also prolific filmmaker both in front of and behind the camera. He has written and presented a number of key television series created in his early years in the United States of America - having left Ireland in 1957- which include Invitation to Art (1958-1960) and The Today Show (1962).
