PLAN at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara
February 6, 2014

Plan, a new live performance work, will feature the four artist-performers of The Bridge Club collaborative working to collect, process and interpret information using sensory and perceptual tools. This work will reference planning and plan-making as a metaphor, where the physical document of the plan (be it a list, map, or blueprint) attests to the ways that plans get derailed, remade or destroyed— physically, emotionally, psychologically or historically. The actions of the performers will allude to plans we make that are never realized or perhaps even spoken.

The Bridge Club’s work will be included this fall in Sadie Hawkins, a group exhibit at CentralTrak: the UT Dallas Artist Residency & Gallery in Dallas, TX.

From the press release:
“First popularized by the Li’l Abner comic strip in 1937, Sadie Hawkins Day is an American folk event that celebrates role-reversal and female empowerment. Celebrations of this decades-old tradition continue to this day at high schools and college campuses around the country, where women choose their date to the annual dance of the same name. In honor of this kitschy and dated tradition, CentralTrak will display “Sadie Hawkins,” a group show curated by Leigh A. Arnold consisting of women artists whose work focuses on challenging traditional gender expectations, role-reversal, and Feminist/post-Feminist sensibilities.”

Participating artists include: The Bridge Club, Celia Eberle, Linda Finnell, Susan kae Grant, Margaret Meehan, Nina Schwanse, and Faith Wilding.
