Come and experience the changes twilight brings to the amber walls of David Ireland’s house as you enjoy a performance by accomplished accordionist, musician, and accordion repairman Jonathan Kipp. The evening is part of Ann Hamilton’s project, Process + Place: here • there • then • now, currently on view at two sites: Headlands Center for the Arts and 500 Capp Street. Prior to Ireland’s purchase of 500 Capp Street, the House was the home and repair shop of Paul Greub, a Swiss accordion maker. In her project, Hamilton conjures the early history of 500 Capp Street and connects Ireland’s spaces across time and distance as the day fades to twilight. The evening event is a rare opportunity to experience the convergence of Hamilton’s research and Kipp’s response to it in a live performance.
