Event Summary

Join us at the Mattress Factory for our first in-person Coffee Date program of 2021! 

Visit with artist Njaimeh Njie as she discusses her practice, process, and experience installing “Did you get everything?” now on view in the Mattress Factory’s Monterey Annex as a part of the brand-new exhibition, making home here. Through photography, filmmaking, and multimedia producing, Njie’s practice centers everyday people, narratives, and landscapes, with a particular focus on how black people perceive themselves and their experiences in the places they call home. Njie will sit down with members to discuss this practice and how it manifests in her installation through the nature and act of storytelling. Complimentary coffee and pastries will be served. 

We hope to see you there! To RSVP, register here or email members@mattress.org
