7 – 9 p.m.
Join us for our next LET’S GET WEIRD! This fun night is an audio/visual program activated throughout the entire David Ireland House, co-organized by the Foundation’s curatorial team, Diego Villalobos and Bob Linder. The idea for the event is rooted in Ireland’s legacy as an active member of the Bay Area arts community and as a frequent host to events like this at his 500 Capp Street home.
April’s LET’S GET WEIRD! includes our current exhibition, The Disagreeable Object with work from our newly launched Visiting Artist Series. Virginia Overton is our first visiting artist, and she has made site-specific work for The Garage rooftop and inside the House.
LET’S GET WEIRD! creates an atmosphere for conversation and engagement among local art enthusiasts and practitioners with different curated video, music and performance alongside a guest bartender.

Los Angeles based artist Jibz Cameron talks her days in bygone San Francisco and her alter ego Dynasty Handbag.
Jibz Cameron is a performance and video artist living in Los Angeles. Her work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag has been presented at international dives both great and small. She has been heralded by the New York Times as “the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years,” and “outrageously smart, grotesque and innovative,” by The New Yorker. She has produced numerous video works and 2 albums of original music. In addition to her work as Dynasty Handbag she has also been seen acting in work by various avant-garde theater groups and in many comedic web series that remain unpopular. She also works as a professor and lecturer of performance and comedy related subjects at Cal-Arts. Cameron recently moved from New York to Los Angeles and is in development with Electric Dynamite on a television series about a performance artist that moves from New York to Los Angeles. Cameron will be performing her new stand-up show Dynasty Handbag: I, An Moron or Childless White Lesbian Coyote in Hollywood, (A Star Spangled Bummer) at THE LAB on May 27, 8 p.m.
