When I come home to Pittsburgh, my favorite thing to do is go straight to the Mattress Factory, a contemporary art museum and experimental lab that features installations from artists in residence from around the world. With Halloween approaching, they will be hosting Patti Loper and Andrew Renaudo in their Art And… series, in which artists and musicians are paired for a night of Q&A and engagement with many forms of artistic mediums. Loper’s installation Laboratory for Other Worlds will be featured. From this image, I really enjoy her use of expanse and geometry. My parents will be in attendance in my place, so I am excited to hear their reviews.
