Molly Soda has been interviewed by Office Magazine writer Conor Hudnut. Soda details the re-staging of a work at NADA that was originally shown at 315 Gallery during her solo show I’m just happy to be here last summer.

It’s there to interact with you, if you’re interested in doing so.” You can read the full interview here.
