Film Screening: Site-Specific: A History of the Mattress Factory

Site-Specific: A History of the Mattress Factory (97 minutes)

Through a mix of stories and anecdotes, archival installation footage, and interviews with artists and co-directors Barbara Luderowski and Michael Olijnyk, "Site-Specific: A History of the Mattress Factory" presents an in-depth look at one of the first site-specific museums in the United States. 

Founded in 1977 in Pittsburgh, PA, the Mattress Factory is a contemporary art museum and experimental lab featuring site-specific installations created by artists in residence from around the world. Starting as a quirky, anything goes food co-op and artist studio space, the museum created a program of artist residencies in 1982 to focus on site-specific installation art and they never looked back.

Cutting between the installation of the museum’s 40th anniversary exhibition and the museum’s long history of exhibiting experimental art, the film provides an intimate, sometimes humorous, look at the indirect path a museum takes as it creates its identity.

The film features interviews with artists Ann Hamilton, Sarah Oppenheimer, Vanessa German, Dennis Maher, Kevin Clancy, and David Pohl, and rare archival installation footage of James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Meg Webster, David Ellis, as well as performance art by Chrome and others.
