Exhibition RunsMay 1 - Sep 30
Three galleries Five months
Three by Five is a new opportunity consisting of five one month-long residencies that take place from May until September this year. Each month, three different Artist Coordinators, selected from Soap Factory alumni or other highly-regarded artist leads, host one or more emerging artists of their own choosing in one of our first floor galleries. These emerging artists will be allowed to make new work directly in the space, responding to the gallery environment and to one another. Towards the end of their residency, they will be presenting their work to the public with an open house event.
This program is happening at an exciting time at The Soap Factory, and we are honored to make new relationships and re-engage with a large group of emerging artists and audiences. Our goal is to give artists-in-residence support in the areas they need most support in; space to create, freedom to experiment, networking opportunities, exposure for and critical reviews of their work. This is a great opportunity for audiences to view new work by some of the Twin Cities’ most innovative, up and coming artists.
To respect the artists’ time during the residency there will be no regular gallery hours, please join us during the public openings to view the work. You can stay up to date on their progress by following the artists on our 3×5 blog.
