‘Place as Process: An Evening with Virginia Overton’, 20 April 2017, 7pm
Virginia Overton presents a new site specific installation for The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street, a recently restored heritage site in San Francisco.
Overton’s work will be on view for those attending 500 Capp Street’s public and private tours, in conjunction with an exhibition of the work of artist David Ireland (1930-2009), to whom the house belonged.
Virginia Overton's works comprises installation, sculpture and photography, often beginning intuitively as a direct response to her physical presence in a particular space.
Artist David Ireland (1930-2009) is best-known for his home at 500 Capp Street, which he embedded with art and slowly transformed into a site-specific installation now regarded as the inspiration, source of materials, and repository for some of his most important work. Following a two-year restoration effort, visitors to the David Ireland House are now able to experience the late artist’s home alongside exhibitions by other artists.
On 20 April 2017, the 500 Capp St Foundation presents ‘Place as Process: An Evening with Virginia Overton’. Overton will site-specific practice, the consideration of materials, and artworks that were made for the current exhibition ‘The Disagreeable Object’. For further information and booking, click here.
