April’s LET’S GET WEIRD! includes our exhibition, The Disagreeable Object with work from our newly launched Visiting Artist Series. Virginia Overton was our first visiting artist, and she 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. LET’S GET WEIRD! 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.
