Come Up To My Room 2018
The Gladstone’s Annual Alternate Art + Design Event
January 18 – 21st, 2018
Opening Reception – January 20th (7-10pm)
LOVE DESIGN Party (Opening After Party) January 20th (10pm-2am)
Come Up To My Room (#CUTMR) is an alternative design exhibition that provides a platform for experimentation outside the norms of art and design, at the edges between intention and interpretation. Freed from the constraints of traditional practice, CUTMR encourages spatial exploration that engages our senses, our memories and our perceptions of reality. The exhibition challenges participants to push their everyday practice by offering a blank canvas upon which to explore new themes and ways of working. Framed within the backdrop of the historic 128-year-old Gladstone Hotel, CUTMR invites artists and designers to create site-specific, immersive installations that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike.
The 15th Anniversary of CUTMR will take place between January 18 and January 21, 2018, in conjunction with Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) Interior Design Show (IDS) with over 25 collectives featuring Canadian and international artists + Designers.
