‘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.

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.
