Emerging Artists @ The Soap Factory

Mike Hoyt, Poho Posit, 2012

Feel your heart race as you pull the trigger of Drew Anderson’s "shotgun projector" illuminating the point of view of an animatronic hunter in the north woods of Minnesota. Zero in on Mike Hoyt’s video paintings of the Powderhorn neighborhood and join the online civic dialog. Get on the horn and leave a status update for Caly McMorrow’s sound and light installation. See yourself and the world around you differently in Anthony Tran’s hertzian funhouse mirror. Make your mark on the environment with Aaron Westre’s urban planning video game.

Opening March 3 through April 15, Northern Lights presents the third edition of Art(ists) On the Verge at The Soap Factory. AOV is an intensive, year-long, mentor-based fellowship program for emerging artists working experimentally at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture with a focus on network-based practices that are interactive and/or participatory.

Artist talks March 23 and 30, 8 pm at The Soap Factory.

Art(ists) On the Verge is generously supported by the Jerome Foundation.

Graduate Stephanie Washburn in PULSE Miami Contemporary Art Fair


Beginning this week, Mark Moore Gallery presents new works at the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, Miami by selected artists from the program. With special emphasis on newly represented artists such as Stephanie WashburnFeodor VoronovOkay Mountain, and Andrew Schoultz, the gallery will debut ambitious works from emerging artists as well as those from Tim BavingtonKenichi YokonoYigal OzeriDavid RathmanBen WeinerAllison Schulnik, and others.


The gallery will also be producing a number of special projects and events this year. On Wednesday, November 30th, by invitation only, the Sagamore Hotel (in conjunction with Voguethe Art Production Fund,Mark Moore Gallery, and ZieherSmith) will screen three videos by Allison Schulnik, including Hobo Clown(2008), Forest (2009) and the recently debuted Mound (2011).


Additionally, in celebration of gallery artist Andrew Schoultz's recent participation in the Fountainhead Residency (through which he has created a new public mural in the Wynwood District and several new large scale works), the gallery is hosting an invitation-only cocktail reception alongside Marx & ZavatteroMorgan Lehman Gallery, and Jerome Zodo Contemporary with special guest host, Moby.


Finally, the gallery will be sponsoring a public-area installation in the entryway of the PULSE Art Fair: a rigorous new video project by gallery artist Josh AzzarellaUntitled #125 (2011) is a work derived from the 6 minute and 30 second scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy is transported from Kansas into Oz. Using a technique based on layering and recursive frames, this moment of transformation is extended to envelop the entire time of her actual experience. Just as dreams – which realistically occur in flashes of seconds in our brains – can seem like hours or days, Dorothy’s hours of unconsciousness become a five-day real time journey throughout the entire duration of the fair.

 A preview of some of the work that will be shown in the gallery's booth can be found on Mark Moore Gallery's exhibitor profile.


The fair is open to the public starting Thursday, December 1, from 1 -7pm. It is also open 11a - 7p on December 2nd & 3rd, and 11a - 5p on December 4th; or by special appointment by contacting the gallery.
