The Program – By Artists, For Artists
Continuing our commitment to centering artist voices and decentering institutional voice, the review of submissions and selection of artists will be done by artists who have previously exhibited at the Mattress Factory. The artists forming the Artist Review Panel for the 2021 International Open Call are vanessa german, Sohrab Kashani, Christopher Meerdo and Sarah Oppenheimer. The Artist Review Panel will review submissions and select artists to be offered residencies and solo exhibitions, shaping the upcoming programs of the Mattress Factory from submissions to the open call.
During their residency, artists are free to explore wherever their process leads them. The Mattress Factory will support each artist’s process from development through production and installation to exhibition. Solo exhibitions resulting from residencies will be scheduled from Spring 2023 onwards.
