David Ireland House | 500 Capp St., San Francisco, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Bay Area artist David Wilson creates observational drawings based on direct experiences with landscape and orchestrates site-based gatherings. He is The David Ireland House’s first long term artist-in-residence and was given free rein to investigate the historic home of artist David Ireland on his own as it remained closed due to the pandemic earlier this year.
The results of Wilson’s 4-month exploration of the House, its archive, and the streets around it will be on display in a new exhibition entitled Sittings. The free exhibition encompasses an installation of his work within the rooms of the House, often in conversation with objects of interest from the Ireland archive, and the transformation of the House’s garage into a street-accessible space where visitors can pick up maps to sites of neighborhood intervention where they are invited to sit, discover small artist-created offerings, and leave their own mark on the project.
