About Soapbox Gallery
Soapbox Gallery is dedicated to providing a forum for visual artists to engage in the issues of our time and express themselves publicly without censorship.
In the tradition of the humble yet mighty soapbox that encouraged free speech and played a role in the development of our social contract, provocative work can stir public debate, raise consciousness, and even spur social evolution. Too many of us despair at the lack of content in work celebrated by the art world. Soapbox Gallery challenges artists to speak out and be relevant.Home in all its familiarity, arrangement and structure is a constantly shifting environment, a stranger at times. Cleaning Day will be completed over a period of 6 days.
Each day from 5:00PM to 7:00PM the arrangement of furniture and personal items from the artist Chere Krakovsky’s East Village home will be dismantled and new objects added creating a new configuration, from kitchen to library, from sitting room into study. The Soapbox window will be cleaned in and out, a daily practice, a meditation, a blank page.
