SOAP at KINGS proceeds as an exhibition and series of discussions that explores the relationship between the material and the discursive. SOAP at KINGS creates an open platform for interdisciplinary discussion and production in Gallery One KINGS Artist-Run. Each week an invited speaker from the disciplines of Economics, Linguistics and Engineering will present on an aspect of their current research. Speakers will be addressing themes as diverse as political and development economics, feminism as related to language and the role of subtitles in Japanese screen culture. The exhibition itself will be rearranged each week, extending the scope and vocabulary for how we talk about and place work in and outside of the gallery.

State of Art Platform (SOAP) is Jack Brown, Beth Caird, Lucinda Eva-May, Nina Gilbert, Samantha McCulloch, Sophie Neate, James Tunks, Xanthe Waite, Christopher Williams-Wynn, Grace Wood and Azza Zein.

“SOAP is a platform for the collective questioning of what it means to practice as an emerging artist today. As all good collectives of this type – I think of Art and Language in particular – its personnel and its direction are fluid. Commonalities give way to differences and new voices appear and existing voices are reframed. SOAP is less a collection of practices but rather a foundation of a type of inquiry established by practice.” Toby Juliff on SOAP 2016.
