Mattress Factory invites artists from around the world to apply for residency. Selected artists are given a $5,000 honorarium and supported throughout the development of their project over an 18 to 24 month period, culminating in a site-specific installation inside the Museum.
The International Open Call is open to artists from around the world as well as from around the corner. Artists are invited to submit a portfolio of work and supporting documentation, which will be reviewed by the Artist Review Panel.
Artists must submit a single, multi-page PDF file including (max. file size: 25mb):
- A 2-page (max.) Bio or CV.
- Up to 10 images for consideration. Images must be accompanied by the artwork’s Title, Year, Medium, and Dimensions. Please include any notes regarding installation if relevant. For video or audio works, please include a static image in the PDF (you may also include a URL pointing to the file online in the text of the PDF). You may also submit up to 4 supporting audio or video files.
- Artists may also submit supporting documentation, but it is not required (i.e. press reviews or videos of artist talks).
- Please do not include project proposals in your submission.
