"Theaster Gates: Soul Manufacturing Corporation." November 10 - December 21, 2012. Dennis Scholl calls Theaster Gates’ performance and installation Soul Manufacturing Corporation “my personal favorite.” In this multidisciplinary installation that ran for a little over a month in 2012, Gates set up a small utopia where skilled makers worked, producing bricks and other objects out of clay, while a yoga instructor, DJ, or a reader came to introduce balance to the environment. Scholl was so intrigued with Gates’ project that he produced a short film about it, titled Theaster Gates: Soul Manufacturing Corporation, which was nominated for an Emmy.
