Sustained Decay, an installation by Andy Vogt and Joshua Churchill in the Backroom Gallery

For the exhibition, Sustained Decay, artists Andy Vogt and Joshua Churchill intervene in the upcoming renovation and recent expansion of the Adobe Books Backroom Gallery. Renewal comes to a momentary halt, where both Vogt and Churchill reflect on the site's architecture and environment, sustaining the tension between progress and decay. Their respective practices have been integrated directly into the gallery space and its emerging boundaries, evoking an understanding of the time and history the Backroom Gallery continues to endure.

Subversive Cursive, readings by Leigh Gallagher, Chaim Bertman, and Gravity Goldberg and Music by Jessica Pratt at 8:00PM
