The Soap Factory

Deadline: April 30, 2012 (POSTMARK)

Call for Submissions
The Soap Factory

Minneapolis, MN
2013 Season

The Soap Factory exhibits work in its galleries throughout the year. Exhibitions curated from submissions are typically comprised of 8-10 artists. The Soap Factory is a 120-year old ex-industrial warehouse on the banks of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. We have no climate control, air conditioning or permanent heating system; please bear this in mind when submitting your work. Projects by individual artists that propose to use the entire 12,000 sq feet of gallery space are always encouraged.

We are particularly interested in proposals conceived specifically for The Soap Factory galleries. Our programming is unique in that we select only a small proportion of the artists we exhibit from our pool of submissions. We commonly receive 400 artist submissions per season.

Submission Guidelines for 2013 season: (truncated)

* Postmark deadline is April 30, 2012.
* We do NOT accept e-mailed submissions.
* Submissions are reviewed for exhibition in the 2013 season.
* Artists selected for the 2013 season will be notified in summer of 2012.
* We may keep your submission on file for up to 8 months.

The Soap Factory provides full installation support for all selected projects, including travel and accommodation, as well as a stipend to artists. We provide publicity, exhibition invitations, mailings, opening reception and artist talks. We do not provide insurance coverage for work exhibited at The Soap Factory. All work is shown at the artist's own risk.
