‘Cut’: The Bridge Club at Art Palace

Posted September 8th, 2015

Cut, a solo exhibit of photographs by The Bridge Club, will be on view at Art Palace in Houston, TX from September 11- October 24, 2015, accompanied by a live performance during the exhibit’s opening reception on September 11 from 6-8pm.

From the gallery’s press release:
The images on view offer glimpses of past performances by The Bridge Club from over the past two years. As the evidence of one anonymous collective persona realized by four agents, the tone of the photographs exists in the climate between camaraderie and isolation. The exhibit’s title refers both to the cinematic nature of the photographs on display and to the physical act of cutting, which will feature prominently in the performance. ‘Cut’ will activate the gallery space where sculpture typically resides and reference the surrounding photographic images, creating a sense of placelessness and ineffable longing.

Melinda Barlow essays in Flow

Posted August 5th, 2014

The Bridge Club’s work is featured in a fantastic pair of recently published essays by Melinda Barlow in the July and August 2014 issues of FLOW, an online journal of media studies:

When Sleepers Wake and Yet Still Dream in Volume 2, Issue 1 (July 2014)

Without Warning in Volume 2, Issue 2 (August 2014)

These essays deal with the mythology of place, and incorporate references to The Bridge Club’s recent performances with The Trailer in Texas and Kansas. We are honored and humbled to be included in such insightful and poetic writing!
