Nothing is Impossible
I'm looking forward to this Friday's opening at The Mattress Factory. Nothing is Impossible. Two curators and five artists hailing from London and Dublin have addressed the idea that nothing is impossible.
"Artistic practice is considered a method of re-thinking our relationship with the world, of posing other possibilities, other narratives. The working material of the artist becomes the hidden and mutable possibilities of the physical, the social, the scientific and the political. This extension of the imaginary and confrontation of reality asks us to consider what role we play in the way things are."
I like to think of my role in the way things are. In many ways, we all must constantly consider our own relationships to the world around us. I'm intrigued by the premise of the show and looking forward to seeing the ways in which each individual artist has worked with the idea. If you're in Pittsburgh on Friday, stop by The Mattress Factory…we'll be there sometime after 7-ish.
p.s. I've heard a rumor that one piece is based off reclaimed tracks from Kennywood's famous roller-coaster, The Racer.
