We are excited to present C. Davida Ingram’s second appearance at Bridge Productions, Lexical Tutor, a solo exhibition featuring new works by Ingram this July.

Lexical Tutor is the next chapter in a story that Ingram began with her collaborative artist project stereoTYPE. With stereoTYPE, Ingram invited five other black women artists to investigate how text helps us to imagine race and, specifically, blackness. With Lexical Tutor, Ingram continues her focus on creating an imaginarium of black womanhood--envisioning what its natural state might be along with a dissection of its distorted state under white supremacy.

The textual highlight notes in Lexical Tutor shares more about the process of making the work including Ingram's connections with her collaborators Jane Kibirge, Zorn B. Taylor, Lauren Holloway, Dan Webb, Bob Redmond, and Eric Carnell/Fogland Studio.

C. Davida Ingram is a Seattle-based artist and storyteller whose artwork focuses on creating counter-narratives through the use of social practice projects, performances, installations, and conceptual art. Her work explores desire, space, time and memory using blackness as its prism. Ingram is specifically interested in expanding the archive of inquiry-making around 21st century black female subjectivity. Her re-readings of gender, sexuality, economic class, and vernaculars are a way of making images that re-conceive of what the black female body can be and become. Her work has been shown at the Frye Art Museum, Northwest African American Art Museum, Town Hall, Intiman Theater, University of Washington, Evergreen College, Washington State Convention Center, and the Tacoma Art Museum.
