The Unexpected Idea and its Realisation: Patrick Ireland/Brian O’Doherty, Michael Craig-Martin

A History of Irish Art 6

Brian O’Doherty and Michael Craig-Martin are two Irish artists who have achieved international recognition for their work - both cross many boundaries - and as key supporters of new forms of contemporary art: Patrick Ireland/Brian O’Doherty as an author, activist and with the National Endowment for the Arts in the USA; Michael Craig-Martin as an inspiring tutor, in particular at Goldsmith’s College in London, arguably leading him to become the most influential figure behind the Young British Artists.

Tickets can be reserved for the whole series or for each lecture individually.
