Dive deep into Art, Design + Nature at the Gladstone Hotel’s Grow Op 2018: After the Flood
All four floors of the Gladstone Hotel will be taken over by plants, moss, overflowing water, bumble bee nectar pods, nuclear waste, fig trees and more for Grow Op 2018 this April 18-22!
Grow Op is a four-day festival that will transform the Gladstone Hotel with 30+ immersive installations that celebrate innovative ideas and conceptual responses to urbanism, environmental sustainability, landscape design, and contemporary art. Think Allan Gardens meets Come Up to My Room!
What lies beyond once the floodwaters recede? What emerges once the smoke clears? As cataclysmic climate events multiply in tandem with our species’ continuously expanding footprint, we are re-conceiving our relationships with the organic and inorganic world around us in unprecedented ways! Grow Op 2018 employs the tools of art, craft, and design to question our conceptions of urban and wild curated by Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects with Lukus Toane.
