Artstor Digital Library and the Mattress Factory are now sharing more than 5,000 images documenting installations exhibited at the museum since its opening in 1977. This is the first release of a projected 12,000 images.
The Mattress Factory is a museum of contemporary art in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that specializes in installations created on site by artists from all over the world. The museum’s unusual galleries are located in two creatively reused buildings on the city’s historic North Side. Both buildings house a growing permanent collection, featuring works by James Turrell, Yayoi Kusama, Winifred Lutz, and Rolf Julius, as well as periodical exhibitions.
