David Ireland (1930-2009) is one of the West Coast's most important conceptual and installation artists. “500 Capp Street”, his famous house and studio has become a world-recognized example of an artist transforming architecture into fine art. In 2003 the Oakland Museum presented a touring retrospective exhibition of his work featuring about 80 works created between 1972 and 2002: large-scale installations, sculptural objects and his paintings, drawings and painted photographs.
