5 May-27 Aug 2006. A retrospective of the work of Dublin-born artist and writer Brian ODoherty inaugurates the new extension to Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane. Since 1972 ODoherty has exhibited his work under the name of Patrick Ireland until such time as the British military presence is removed from Northern Ireland. A pioneer in the Conceptual art movement, ODoherty/Ireland has had over 40 one-man exhibitions in Europe and America at both mainstream and avant-garde venues. His books Inside the White Cube - The Ideology of the Gallery Space(1986) and American Masters: The Voice and the Myth in Modern Art(1982) have become seminal texts. This exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, drawings and installations spanning 60 years. Three new site-specific pieces are also on display: Golden Door, one of his unique Rope Drawing works; a 3 sqm wall painting entitled Song of the Vowels; and a life-size Labyrinth. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with texts by leading critics and writers including Hans Belting, Mark Rosenthal, Mary-Ruth Walsh and David Moos. Entrance free. Tues-Thurs 09.30-18.00, Fri-Sat 09.30-17.00, Sun 11.00-17.00.
