The Mattress Factory archives are physically located on the third floor of the museum (near the Yayoi Kusama permanent collection pieces) behind two discrete doors. Inside the archive are many artistic gems including 3D installation remnants, models, artist sketches & correspondance, and limited editions.
Flies from Damien Hirst's 1993 installation, Bad Environment for White Monochrome Paintings
We have many fun + interesting items from past installations. We have the dead fly remains from Damien Hirst’s Bad Environment for White Monochrome Paintings, instructions for John Cage’s Changing Installation at the Mattress Factory, and the wax heads and bird nests from Ann Hamilton’s Offering.
While we have a lot of interesting objects from the past, we are always accessioning new items from shows that have just come down. I look forward to sharing my projects with you and keeping you updated on some of the cool stuff I'm working on! Until next time!
