Escapespace - Composed of a diverse team of designers with backgrounds in architecture and exhibit, urban and communication design. Connected by their interest in the transformation of spaces through interaction and perception, they seek to understand, explore and manipulate how to shape emotional and sensory experiences.
Dream. Create. Consume. Play. Express. Rest. Destroy. How and why do you escape reality?
We’ve been polling Torontonians in an open dialogue to better understand how we all momentarily or repeatedly escape reality and why. Using these collected responses, Escapespace, is an installation and 3-dimensional representation of how we, as a city and as individuals, chose to disconnect with our daily realities and environment and escape within our own personal spheres.
Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) Toronto’s largest alternative design show enters a new decade with new initiatives and a diverse lineup of local and national talent: 25 installations, 60 artists, and 4000 visitors, all in under 4 days. Gladstone Managing Director of Art, Britt Welter-Nolan is joined by three new curatorial forces: Jaclyn Blumas, Robert Cram and Elise Hodson.
