Rebecca O’ Dwyer is an Irish art critic and writer based in Berlin. She holds a PhD from the department of Visual Culture at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin. She is currently working on a non-academic, book-length project.

Her writing has appeared in Paper Visual Art Journal, Source Photographic Review, Art Review, Real Life, The White Review, Enclave Review, Fallow Media, Spike, frieze, 032c, 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, Temple Bar Gallery, mother’s tankstation, and Artangel (online).

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.
