The Mattress Factory has pioneered the development of alternative art forms through site-specific installations, video and performance art.

It is nationally and internationally recognized as a leader in site-specific, contemporary art and is notorious for pushing the boundaries of both artist and viewer. The unparalleled support that artists receive from the Mattress Factory, while working in residence, often results in the production of extraordinary artwork that propels the artist’s career and significantly impacts the field of contemporary art.

The Mattress Factory is pleased to announce Pop-Aganda: Revolution & Iconography, an exhibition of new site-specific works from eight artists, running through 2023. The exhibition was thus originally planned to open in November 2020, to align with the U.S. Presidential elections, but was postponed to April 2022 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

How does an idea become a fact? As cultural meaning makers, how do artists play a role in the migration of thought? This exhibition, and the answers to these inquiries, will continue to evolve with world events.

Exhibitions through the rest of 2022 include "Shrine" - a celebration of Black motherhood - developed with local Pittsburgh arts residency "Sibyls Shrine," and installations from international artist Doreen Chan.
