Behind the biennial


Cheryl Wilgren Clyne knows exactly how busy she’s been assembling “superusted,” her title for The Soap Factory’s 4th Midwest Biennial, since she accepted the role of curator almost a year-and-a-half ago.

Clyne has made 138 studio visits since May 2014 — a precise tally she offered without hesitation during a recent conversation at a St. Paul café. It was two weeks before opening, and she was just about to begin installing work by 17 artists from Minnesota and several nearby states in the wood-and-brick former warehouse.
