Want to throw a music, art or fundraising event at the Gladstone?
As part of a B-Corporation commitment to social engagement and responsibility, The Gladstone Hotel works with community partners and artists on a host of cultural events, from Pride parties to trivia nights. If you have a proposal for a cultural-events partnership, please out our partnership request form.
Join us on June 25th for the Opening Reception for what will no doubt be a magical night at the Gaystone. Join us for the official after-party in the Ballroom with Steers and Queers: Night of 1000 Dollys.
That’s So Gay: Fall to Pieces will be a 2 month exhibition of new projects created by LGBTTI2QQ artists about their experiences of disability, radicalization, class, and other intersectional experiences of identity. The show attempts to interrupt the idea of a homogenous queer community and reimagines what it means to talk about our lived experiences as artists from a diversity of backgrounds.
The subtitle (Fall to Pieces) refers to many things: the ways that the once rigid borders in the LGBTTI2QQ communities are become permeable, perhaps even falling away; the desire by many of the artists in the show to tear down the policed borders of nationalism; helping to disappear the concept of dichotomous genders; and giving voice to the very real way that we feel emotion- encouraging a frank consideration of sadness, joy and fear in our lives, and the ways that our creativity supports our resiliency.
TSG = Fall To Pieces Opening is in collaboration with the 10×10 Photography Project opening at the Hotel.
Curated by Syrus Marcus Ware.
In conjunction with the TSG opening is the opening of…
10X10 Photography Project
The 10X10 Photography Project is an annual event and publication that celebrates queer Canadians in the arts. Portraits of 100 LGBTI Canadians in the arts by 10 queer Canadian photographers will be exhibited at the Gladstone Hotel.
Now in its fourth year, 10X10 has become one of Toronto’s most anticipated annual visual art events during Pride. As a celebration of the Canadian queers in the arts, the 2014 exhibition during WorldPride presents an exciting opportunity to showcase the diversity, personality, and passion of our community on an international stage. The accompanying book of portraits, available for sale to the public, serves as an important documentation of the immense power and creativity of queerness.
