Art And...with Patte Loper & Andrew Ranaudo

Nov 22, 2019 - Nov 22, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Mattress Factory
500 Sampsonia Way
Pittsburgh, pa 15212

Collaborating on a special audiovisual experience, Factory Installed 2019 artist Patte Loper and musician Andrew Ranaudo are creating connections between the anthropological and the extraterrestrial for a special performance. It will feature live music by Ranaudo in a lounge activated by video and special effects by Loper. As a reflection of the artists’ mutual interest in seeking philosophical answers to human contributions to climate change, the effort is meant as a joyful celebration of the HOPE humans can bring to large issues. We dream, we want, we demand a better future than is possible with the status quo.

In the intimate space of the Wexler Room at Mattress Factory's Monterey Annex, the hour long performance will create a communal and meditative environment for all.
