Rebecca O’ Dwyer is an Irish art writer, critic and editor based in Berlin. She recently completed a PhD in the department of Visual Culture at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin, after writing a thesis on the conditions of contemporary art criticism.
Her writing has appeared in Paper Visual Art Journal, Source Photographic Review, Art Review, Real Life, Enclave Review, Fallow Media, Spike, frieze, this is tomorrow, Eyeline, Apollo, The Stinging Fly, The Tangerine, and elsewhere; and she has written texts alongside exhibitions at the Project Arts Centre, The Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Douglas Hyde Gallery, the Lab, Temple Bar Gallery, and mother’s tankstation.
From 2016-2018, she edited the online art writing publication, Response to a Request, which included new writings by Isabel Nolan, Kevin Breathnach, Joanna Walsh, Mike McCormack, and many others. In keeping with the project’s remit, these writings have since vanished, but you can read more about the project here.
