Exhibition Runs

Jan 14 - Feb 12


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.

Exhibition takes place in galleries 1,2, and 3
