We are accustomed to following rules and procedures, and these provide us with the solace of a programmatic rhythm. What we tend to notice are the inevitable jags in our routine. Suddenly, we are forced to engage with our bodies and environments, the visceral reality of our being. A disruption. An alteration to the routine.

For the volunteers at the Soap Factory, engaging with our building becomes an interruption in their lives. To celebrate these engagements, The Soap Factory Presents ‘Disruption,’ our 2017 Volunteer Biennial, curated by Soap Factory interns, Mackenzie Catton and Jessi Goodell. 

This exhibition features the work of 14 of the Soap Factory’s hardworking volunteers who dedicate their time to a gallery that is often an incongruous presence in the neighborhood. The artists of this exhibition enact contemporary disruptions in tandem with the historic structure that they have come to know.

Artist, Paige Carlson will be performing her piece for the public during the following dates and times:
January 14th 5-8pm  (opening reception)
January 28th, 10am-12pm
February 12th, 11pm-1pm

Birthed by post-election funk, Bleed & Burn is a catalytic flag-making exhibition/action. This exhibition is a response to the crass, misogyny, racism, xenophobia, and other base instincts that got expressed during the election, and are now exemplified in the president-elect and his cabinet of horrors.

Thirteen artists will create twelve, standard-size flags that will be exhibited in the basement gallery of The Soap Factory, January 14-21. Each flag will in turn be burned independently by each artist at a location of their choosing (post-exhibition). The flags and documentation of each burning will be made into a book published at Beyond Repair , book shop and publishing site located in the Midtown Global market, 920 E Lake St, Minneapolis. A flag-making workshop will take place at Beyond Repair, January 15, 2017.
