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.
