Brian O'Doherty | Reading Time

Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh Co. Cork

Sat 11 Mar 2023 - Sat 17 Jun 2023 (note: this event has already taken place)

Brian O’Doherty’s exhibition Reading Time features works layered in time and space, and concern the building that SIRIUS occupies, Irish history, and literature as a medium that unfolds durationally. They are mostly borrowed from Irish museums and private collections, and include pieces from the holdings of O’Doherty’s close collaborators and a study for One, Here, Now, the mural that he made at SIRIUS in 1996, now accessioned into the SIRIUS Collection. This exhibition is the first presentation of O’Doherty’s production since his passing on 7 November 2022, and reiterates his key themes: language, identity, perception, and ideology.
