Art(ists) on the Verge 7 features new work from five Minnesota-based artists. AOV7 is an intensive, year-long, mentor-based fellowship program for emerging artists working experimentally at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture.

One of the fundamental concepts defining the mission of the Art(ists) on the Verge Fellowship is the commitment to emerging artists whose practice often falls outside of and in between the traditional notions of media or disciplines. The Art(ists) on the Verge fellows are no exception. Their work at The Soap Factory engages with a broad spectrum of ideas.
