Framed within the backdrop of the historic 130-year-old Gladstone Hotel, ‘Come Up To My Room’ invites artists and designers to create a 4-day site-specific, immersive installations that stimulates the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike. #CUTMR2019 will feature over 20 projects with over 50 participants! Join CUTMR2019 curators Jana Macalik, Jennie Suddick, and Lee Petrie in celebrating 16 years of art and design at Toronto’s leading art hotel.
‘Come Up To My Room’ (#CUTMR) is an alternative design exhibition that provides a platform for experimentation outside the norms of art and design and 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. CUTMR is a platform for artists and designers to challenge themselves and try new things in an unconventional setting. It is also a safe space to explore difficult content in an experimental context. For the viewer to fully engage in shared and unique experiences we must employ an open and willing mind, and create a space where our uncertainties and preconceptions can speak to our communal empathy and compassion. And amid any apprehension, artists and designers signal willingly—this is the time to build new connections and forge new narratives.
