Happy Hour: Azza el Siddique

Instead of our usual Member Coffee Date, we are hosting a Cocktail Date with artist Azza el Siddique! Visit with el Siddique over complimentary drinks and light bites on Wednesday evening to discuss her upcoming exhibition at Mattress Factory.

Open to all members!

About Azza el Siddique

Azza El Siddique is known for her dynamic and evocative artwork that often intersects various mediums and themes of mortality, science, mythology, and spirituality. Inspired by her research into ancient Egyptian and Nubian death traditions, El Siddique grapples with protean matters: the inevitable collapse of everything, what happens after life, and how we may find comfort in the face of mortality. El Siddique, born in Khartoum, Sudan, currently lives and works in New Haven, CT. She received an MFA from Yale University School of Art in 2019.

El Siddique was selected for exhibition by a panel of Mattress Factory alumni artists through International Open Call. Mattress Factory believes that alumni artists, those artists who have completed a residency and exhibition with us, know better than anyone what our resources and capacity can accomplish and how special our community is. The panel offers a 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 program in new directions.  The artist alumni panelists were Vanessa German, Sohrab Kashani, Christopher Meerdo and Sarah Oppenheimer.
