Brian O'Doherty (1928, Ballaghaderreen, County Roscommon, Ireland), formerly Patrick Ireland, is an artist and writer. He has had numerous exhibitions in Europe and the United States, including several retrospectives, the most recent of which was at New York University's Grey Gallery in 2007. His alter ego, Patrick Ireland, aged 36, was buried at the Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2008. The name, a political act, was assumed after the Derry, Northern Ireland massacre of 1972. He is the author of several books and novels, including Inside the White Cube, Studio and Cube, and The Deposition of Fr. McGreevy, which was nominated for the Man Booker prize. His alter egos also include Sigmund Bode, feminist and poet Mary Josephson, and William Maginn. He lives in New York with his wife, the art historian, Barbara Novak.
