In Conversation with Martin Herbert
The Douglas Hyde is very pleased to share details of this upcoming conversation between artist Isabel Nolan and writer Martin Herbert on the occasion of Nolan’s current solo exhibition Calling on Gravity.

Martin Herbert is a writer and critic living in Berlin. He is associate editor of ArtReview and writes for many international art journals. Recent publications include, Tell Them I Said No, (2016), The Uncertainty Principle (2014) and Mark Wallinger (2011).
