David Wilson

David Wilson was The David Ireland House’s first artist in residence, where he also exhibited in spring 2021. Wilson’s practice includes creating observational drawings based in direct experiences with landscape and orchestrating site-based gatherings that draw together a wide net of artists, performers, filmmakers, chefs, and artisans into collaborative relationships. He organized the experimental exhibition The Possible at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) in 2014 and received the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) 2012 SECA Art Award. He has exhibited his work with SFMOMA, was included in the 2010 CA Biennial, and presented a Matrix solo exhibition at BAMPFA. For nearly a decade, Wilson has been engaged with BAMPFA as a guest artist. He has received grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation, Southern Exposure, The Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design, and the Kenneth Rainin Foundation. He earned a B.A. in Visual Art from Wesleyan University.
