Opening Reception: Friday, September 11th, 2015, 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through October 24th, 2015.
Art Palace presents Cut, an exhibit of photographs and an opening-night live performance by The Bridge Club collaborative. 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.
Recent works by The Bridge Club collaborative have been presented at Prospect 3+ Biennial (New Orleans;) Ulrich Museum of Art (Wichita, KS;) Flux Projects (Atlanta;) Ohio University (Athens, OH;) the New Genre Arts Festival (Tulsa, OK;) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Santa Barbara, CA.) The Bridge Club, comprised of artists Emily Bivens, Christine Owen, Annie Strader and Julie Wills, works in live performance, installation, video and digital media and has been active since 2004.
