Opening: Eugene Macki

Join Mattress Factory for the opening of a new solo exhibition from artist Eugene Macki at 500 Sampsonia Way.

Macki was selected for exhibition by a panel of Mattress Factory alumni artists through the 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 2021 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 building parking lot located at 505 Jacksonia Street, as well as street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.
