8 September - 27 February 2011. Currently on show at Dublin's IMMA is the Novak/O'Doherty Collection.

Comprising watercolours, drawings, prints, paintings and photographs, the collection was gifted to the museum by art historian Barbara Novak and US-based Irish sculptor and conceptual/installation artist Brian O'Doherty.

Perhaps better known by his alter ego Patrick Ireland, O'Doherty began signing his work under the name Patrick Ireland in 1972, in reaction to Bloody Sunday. In May 2008 in recognition of peace in Ireland, O'Doherty ceremoniously buried his alter ego at IMMA after which he resumed being called by his birth name.

This important collection includes many of the major artists and sculptors active in the post-war New York art scene in the 1960s and 1970s, including Marcel Duchamp, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Christo and Edward Hopper.
