I’ve passed that house thousands of times, climbing up 20th Street, admiring the faded typography advertising an accordion maker who is long gone. The residence of artist David Ireland since the 70s until he moved out a few years before his death in 2009. Last week it opened up its doors to the public. Purchased by Carlie Wilmans and renovated over the years it now serves as gallery, archive of Ireland’s work and also runs an artist-in-residency program. Portraits of Carlie Wilmans for the 500 Capp Street Foundation, head over to their website to find out more about the space and visiting hours.
