Shipped across the country in Bankers boxes, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and WantedDesign unpack, install, and present a dozen distinct national and international showcases. Working with local correspondents, each box includes original works from local designers, reflecting the particular resources and makers of each area.

This seventh edition of ‘Outside the Box’ features responses on the theme “matter.” This theme encompasses material transformation and change, and the essence of material. It looks at how materials are created, reused, or recycled. Correspondents are invited to explore “matter” in any way.

Participating cities and correspondents:

Asheville – Marilyn Zapf
Boston – Kelly Harris Smith
Fogo Island – Alexandra McIntosh
Montreal – Tara Farsky Milroy | Objetik
Philadelphia – Erike De Veyra | Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design
Portland – John Arndt and Wonhee Arndt | Studio Gorm
Saint John – Geof Ramsay
San Francisco Bay Area – Melanie Abrantes
Saskatoon – Crystal Bueckert | Storefront
Seattle – Darin Montgomery
Toronto – SOUVENIR | Danielle Suppa
Vancouver – Riley McFerrin

Learn more about each box at www.otbexhibition.com.

The seventh edition of ‘Outside the Box’ will be presented during the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, January 15-21, 2018. The exhibition will also travel for presentation at WantedDesign Brooklyn, part of NYCxDESIGN, May 17-20, 2018.

‘Outside the Box’ is organized by the Toronto Design Offsite Festival in partnership with WantedDesign, and co-presented with Harbourfront Centre.
