When it comes to turning the Gladstone into the Gaystone–we can’t stop, won’t stop!
To compliment the subversive artwork on the inside of the hotel for That’s So Gay: Come Together and the 10×10 Photography Show, the Gladstone’s resident artist Bruno Billio will transform the exterior for Nuit Rose, Toronto’s free annual festival of queer-focused art and performance.
Here’s a little peek of the installation:
Proud Pride Rainbow Bangs is dedicated to our brothers and sisters of Orlando’s Pulse Night Club. In this large and striking installation, Bruno Billio drapes the Gladstone with 8 ft-long coloured tinsel with the colours of the rainbow. The tinsel will blow and wave in the wind, and on Nuit Rose, sparkle and shimmer in the moonlight and evening lights of Queen Street West.
It will be up all week. Check it out then come inside for the Opening Reception of our Pride exhibitions on June 30 from 7-10pm.
Thank you to Nuit Rose, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre , Scotia Bank, James Burn, Paul DiPalma and Michel’s Bespoke for their generous support.
