The Sound of Blue

Curated by Rebecca Goldfarb and resituated by Amy Trachtenberg
June 29 - July 23, 2016

The Sound of Blue is the second exhibition at the David Ireland House introducing viewers to the late conceptualist’s home and artistic practice with a new selection of work drawn from the 500 Capp Street Foundation’s 3,000-piece collection. The evolving, site-specific installation presents artworks in various media that explore the riddles embedded in Ireland’s work, his interest in sensory experience, and his investigation of repetitive action and the marking of time.
