Celebrate 40 years of installation art with the Mattress Factory during MF@40 – a series of exclusive events that celebrate the organization’s past, present and future. Since 1977, the museum has exhibited work by more than 650 artists from around the world through its innovative residency program.
Muddy shorts. Bird nests. Artists’ sketches. Curator’s notes. Fragments of hard candy. Installation models. The Mattress Factory is a museum unlike any other, and their archives are one-of-a-kind as well. During A Walk Through the Archives, the inaugural MF@40 event, visitors will have an opportunity to get a rare look at the Mattress Factory’s archives, which capture the museum’s evolution since its founding. Chronicling artwork, documentation and objects throughout its history, this is an event you won’t want to miss.
MF@40: A Walk Through the Archives will be held on Thursday, March 16, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm at the Mattress Factory. Your ticket includes two drinks, light appetizers, after-hours access to the museum’s galleries and guided tours of archival materials.
