THE SOAP FACTORY, Minneapolis, Minnesota, received $24,000 in support of the participation of emerging Minnesota and New York City artists in the 2013 Exhibition Program.  The Soap Factory is a laboratory for artistic experimentation and innovation, dedicated to supporting artists and engaging audiences through the production and presentation of contemporary art in a distinctive environment. Its expansive spaces offer artists unusual areas for sculpture, installation, painting, performance, photography, film, and video.  The curatorial process enables a variety of viewpoints to be engaged in selecting artists.  The Soap Factory strives to serve artists at pivotal stages in their careers, those who demonstrate a serious commitment to their practice, have evidence of some professional achievement but no substantial record of accomplishment, are engaged in contemporary dialogue, and have great potential but are under-recognized in the field.
