The End with Andy Vogt
Wednesday, February 22, 2012, 7:30pm
Nearly every day for almost twenty years, artist Andy Vogt has carried a camera in search of the extraordinary find. From gloriously mundane junk arrangements on the streets of the Mission to the endless incongruity of Bay Area flea markets, Vogt has become a meticulous documentarian of remarkable "found" scenes. At the same time, he has acquired an impressive collection of "found" slides from the same flea markets and thrift stores where he makes his own images. Vogt's 35mm slide presentation, The End, lays the "found" next to the "found" in an impeccably curated and wondrously bizarre collection of images.
