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.

Inheritance, an installation and live performance by The Bridge Club, will be on view at Box13 Art Space in Houston from March 9- April 20, with the live performance taking place Tuesday, March 19 from 5-8PM (to coincide with the NCECA conference). Please join us!

Inheritance is an accumulative exhibition and live performance featuring the simple, domestic act of washing dinnerware. In its initial state, the installation features the spare arrangement of fragile, unfired porcelain dinnerware, awaiting activation through use. Midway through the exhibition, the actions of the live performance will activate and transform these objects, and by the exhibit’s close, the installation will consist of residues.

The work’s title, Inheritance, refers to the physical and emotional belongings, expectations and legacies that are passed down between generations.
