Recent Graduate Natalia Gonzalez ’11 Artist in Residence at the Mattress Factory
Posted 11.07.11 by The Center for Art Education
Six international artists, including Natalia Gonzalez (MFAST '11) of Bolivia, were chosen by co-directors Barbara Luderowski & Michael Olijnyk and independent curator Katherine Talcott from 600 artist-submitted portfolios. Gonzalez and the other artists will work in residence at the Mattress Factory in September and October to create new site-specific installations for the Factory Installed exhibition. Her work includes events and recorded responses to a specific place using accessible materials such as lamps, bricks, and string. She uses a video camera to document these activities as well as a tool for drawing. Gonzalez has exhibited throughout Bolivia in Santa Cruz, La Paz, Cochabamba, and Sucre, as well as in the Washington/Baltimore area, Santiago, and Buenos Aires. Factory Installed will be on view at the Mattress Factory, 500 Sampsonia Way, Pittsburgh, PA, from October 28, 2011 - May 1, 2012.
