- Food + Drink
Introducing Last Thursdays at the Gladstone featuring a different art collective every month showcasing a unique mix of music, performance and installation art. On every last Thursday of the month in our ballroom.
Sofí and Eryka Gudiño-Barthold invite you to the Space’s inaugural art party, “Escape Artists”. Twelve artists occupy the Gladstone Hotel, creating a multimedia immersive art experience, with sporadic performance art, short films and visual masterpieces. “Escape Artists” explores the use of art as escapism and how the artist uses their medium as a coping mechanism through which they reveal their deepest and darkest secrets. We ask the question: what are you really running from? Come and drink, dance, and put your finger on the pulse of Toronto’s art scene.

About The Space:
The Space is a living arts event series launched in August 2015. The sister team curates a different group of artists every time to take over a Toronto venue, simultaneously introducing local artists to each other, the city’s art hot spots and the community. As home grown Toronto expressionists, the Gudiño-Barthold sisters started The Space to give other artists more platforms to perform and exhibit, as well as the opportunity to network with one another. We aim to be “not just another art show”, but a real celebration of community, creativity and local talent.
