“Decay” – an exhibition at the Arc Gallery, San Francisco

“Decay” presents artworks addressing the changes of life and its movement, for reasons of environmental condition, economic variables, and social-political drifts. We live in a time when the force of gravity is not simply physical. It is also cultural and spiritual. With “Decay”, the artists that we have selected have explored urban decay, biological decay, societal decay, physical decay and moral decay. All of the works are reminders that everything that we are attached to is ultimately ephemeral. And, the exhibition is a stark reminder that “Decay” is nature’s change agent.

Co-curators, Micaëla van Zwoll and Michael Yochum, selected eight artists with ties to the San Francisco Bay Area. They are each concerned with these ideas of change, its extant deterioration and shift; and they consistently represent those ideas with their work.

The eight artists exhibiting are Philip Alden Benn, Sidnea D’Amico, Marie-Lou Desmeules, Chanel Matsunami Govreau, Phillip Hua, Dan Newman, Jenny Robinson and Tim Roseborough.

Decay runs from November 5 to December 3, with an opening reception on November 5th, 7-10PM.
