Andréa Stanislav Mattress Factory Residency Featured in National Geographic

How does an arts organization survive and thrive through COVID-19?

At Mattress Factory we’re focused on supporting artists in the creation of new art and finding new ways to connect our community with art. What was planned as a short site visit turned in an extended period of art and exploration for Andréa Stanislav who sheltered-in-place with us.

Our doors are closed again to the public, and we are making the most of that time. A new group of artists are working in residence to create new installations that will open in early 2021 (Luftwerk, Meir Tati, Sarawut Chutiwongpeti, Andréa Stanislav, Jeffrey Augustine Songco). Shikeith is creating and presenting new streaming video content that extends his installation Feeling The Spirit In The Dark to an online audience.

Our 2021 resolution? To stay flexible. To stay creative. To keep artists and community at the heart of our work.

When the world reopens, we will be here with incredible art you can get into.
