Opening: Azza el Siddique

Join Mattress Factory for the opening of a new solo exhibition from artist Azza el Siddique at 500 Sampsonia Way.

El Siddique was selected for exhibition by a panel of Mattress Factory Alumni artists through International Open Call. Artists who have worked in residency with Mattress Factory offer perspective unlike any other, one that is deeply familiar with the museum, engaged in many aspects of the contemporary art field, and invested in pushing our exhibitions in new directions. The artist alumni panelists for the 2022 International Open Call were Vanessa German, Sohrab Kashani, Christopher Meerdo and Sarah Oppenheimer.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments are available.

There is limited parking at our main lot located at 505 Jacksonia Street, as well as street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.
