Because ISP exists in a working artist's studio, our hours are not regular. We are open for events and by appointment and would love to have you join us. You can stay up to date on events and projects by following @irvingstreetprojects on instagram or or signing up for our mailing list.
ISP was founded by Kelly Inouye in 2015 to provide meaningful project development and exhibition opportunities to fellow Bay Area artists. Since 2015 ISP has supported 13 artist residencies and has been awarded grants from Southern Exposure, Intersection for the Arts, The Zellerbach Family Foundation, and the San Francisco Arts Commission. Projects at ISP have been covered by KQED Arts, 7x7, SF/Arts Monthly, Artsy, Art Practical, SFAQ, SF Weekly, TimeOutSF, Momus, the Bay City Beacon, and more.
Irving Street Projects (ISP) is a visual arts residency and exhibition space in the Outer Sunset district of San Francisco. Projects are always on view through our large storefront windows and we offer events, workshops, artist talks, and other public programming by accomplished local artists. Artists presenting work at ISP are granted use of the storefront space for a period of months to explore new directions in their practice, present new work and engage with the community. ISP is curated and run by artist Kelly Inouye.
ISP is fiscally sponsored by Intersection for the Arts, San Francisco's oldest alternative arts space, presenting groundbreaking works in the literary, performing, visual, and interdisciplinary arts.
