Disruption: 2017 Volunteer Biennial says
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

Participating artists:
Brandon Alvarado, Caitlin Brutger, Paige Carlson, Paul Fosaaen, Emily Hill, Rachel Jennings, Lisha Kirpalani, Jeremy Kleider, Olivia Novotny, Reid Oyen, Samantha Russell, Samantha Sang, Nicole L. Thomas, Hillary White

Exhibition runs from January 14th through February 12th in galleries 1-3.
Opening reception is January 14th from 7-11pm

Regular Gallery hours:
Thursday 2-8pm
Friday 2-8pm
