Factory Installed 2019 Opening Reception

Uploaded by mattressfactory
Tehran-based artist Sohrab Kashani’s apartment, both an artist residency and an exhibition of contemporary art, is one of the first of its kind in Iraq. On the other side of the world, Pittsburgh-based artist Jon Robin is creating an exact replica of Kashani’s apartment, including all of its contents as part of Factory Installed 2019. “The Other Apartment” is one of Mattress Factory’s newest installations from nine different artists on display through 2020. Other highlights include Pepe Mar's “Dragonfruit,” multi-media pieces focusing on queer bondage, and Patte Loper’s immersive installation, inspired by social and environmental justice. Regular museum visitors will also note another big change: The Greer Lankton Archives, on display since 2017, will be replaced by never-before-seen artwork from the much celebrated queer artist.
