David Ireland House | 500 Capp St., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street, located in San Francisco’s Mission District and widely celebrated as one of the West Coast’s finest examples of a home that was transformed into an environmental artwork, will re-open to the public on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, following six months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The David Ireland House is the historic home turned work of art created by the late, pioneering conceptual artist David Ireland.
Free Artist Guide-led tours are available by reservation for a maximum of two people from the same appointment booking Wednesdays-Saturdays at 2 pm and 4 pm. The hour-long tours are limited to just 1-2 guests total to ensure proper social distancing can be maintained throughout The House. Masks and reservations are required for entry.
Visitors will view an installation of David Ireland’s assemblages from the late 1970s and early 1980s and an exhibition of works by Cuban-born artist Felipe Dulzaides entitled ‘There is no such thing as a perfect circle,’ which had only been on view for two weeks prior to the lockdown.
In ‘There is no such thing as a perfect circle,’ on view through December 19, 2020, Dulzaides, who was a close associate of Ireland, explores subjects of circularity, cultural displacement, chance, dislocation, relocation, and the relationship between architecture and public spaces.
