First Brian O’Doherty, then Patrick Ireland, then Brian O’Doherty again – the highly storied Irish-born artist is the subject of IMMA After’s latest presentation: Cló Collective, after Brian O’Doherty. Based in Dublin, this collective of five young artists have chosen to respond to IMMA Collection: Brian O’Doherty Language and Space and his personal practices. Though Cló specialises in fine print, there is a rich range of responses here, print or not. They are interactive and exploratory, yet deeply personal to each artist.

The event will open with a viewing of IMMA Collection: Brian O’Doherty Language and Space, guided by members of Cló. Afterwards, guests will be led to an event space in Studio 9, where the artworks created by members of Cló Collective are housed. Following this, complimentary refreshments will be provided. There will also be informal discussions and reflections on each person’s experience.

*Tickets for this event are free but due to demand need to be booked in advance.


About the Artist

Brian O'Doherty b.1928

Brian O’Doherty was born in Ireland and is now based in New York. When he left Dublin in 1957, O’Doherty was a qualified medical doctor and emerging artist, and is now renowned as an artist, writer, critic, television host, filmmaker and educator. One of the pioneering generation of conceptual art, O’Doherty produced many seminal works including Portrait of Marcel Duchamp (1966-’67) and an early ‘exhibition in a box’, Aspen 5+6 (1967). When he left Dublin in 1956, O’Doherty was a qualified medical doctor and emerging artist, and is now renowned as an artist, writer, critic, television host, filmmaker and educator. In his art practice O’Doherty has consistently explored the multiple nature of identity, adopting various personae, most notably 'Patrick Ireland', who was buried at IMMA in 2008. Major retrospectives of O’Doherty/Ireland’s work were held at the National Museum of American Art (1986), The Elvehjem Museum of Art (1993), The Butler Institute of American Art (1994), and Dublin City Gallery, the Hugh Lane (2006) which travelled to the Grey Art Gallery, New York (2007). O’Doherty/Ireland’s art is held in numerous private and public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centre George Pompidou, Paris; Dublin City Gallery, the Hugh Lane, Dublin; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; National Museum of American Art, Washington D.C.; National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle WA; Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. — View Artist »
