Box of Angels

500 Capp St.

For Box of Angels, The 500 Capp Street Foundation curators, Bob Linder and Diego Villalobos, will recreate and expand upon two Ireland installations, Boulevard, (1993) and Angel, (1997). Traditionally seen as mediators between heaven and earth, Ireland used angels to represent thoughts of divine spirituality, tweaking their classical and romantic traditions while continuing to think about them as abstract forms. Box of Angels is honored to feature "Untitled" (Passport), (1991) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres. The 23 x 23 x 4 inch stack of blank white paper--a minimalist object embedded with a multiplicity of meaning--temporarily resides in Ireland's guest bedroom.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Box of Angels :

Featuring a David Ireland installation recreated by the curators, this show aims to revisit the meditations created in a 1991 group exhibition featuring David Ireland and Felix Gonzalez-Torres, among other artists. The David Ireland House stages two of Ireland’s past works alongside one of Gonzalez-Torres’ “stacks,” freely distributed stacks of posters available to be taken by the viewer.
