07 November 2015

Aspen 5+6, Brian O'Doherty, 1967

‘In 1967 the Irish artist and critic Brian O’Doherty, who was by then based in New York, edited a double edition of the avant-garde magazine Aspen. Previous editions had been edited by Andy Warhol (Aspen 3) and Marshall McLuhan (Aspen 4). Aspen 5+6 – a small white box – became the first exhibition to completely dispense with a gallery. The result was exciting and innovative’. Read more about the art in the Irish Times article.

Brian O’Doherty’s work features in Vol V: ‘Twentieth Century’ of Art and Architecture of Ireland
