Join creative collaboration LeuWebb Projects for the first 2018 edition of TO DO Designer Drinks on Tuesday, April 3, 2018, from 6pm-9pm at Gladstone Hotel’s Melody Bar!
TO DO Designer Drinks is an informal networking event taking place every first Tuesday of the month. Come have a drink and get to know Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects, and other members of Toronto’s art and design community.
LeuWebb Projects are curators of the sixth edition of Grow Op at the Gladstone Hotel in April 18-22, 2018. Grow Op is an exhibition of art and design that cultivates ideas across a broad range of disciplines, examining how humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay and life. This year’s exhibition will contemplate AFTER THE FLOOD: 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.
LeuWebb Projects is the creative collaboration between artists Christine Leu and Alan Webb, through which they apply their professional design backgrounds to produce moments of beauty in the public realm. Since 2011, they have created more than 20 site-specific artworks across the world. With each piece, Leu and Webb summon their shared artistic and architectural expertise to explore how a site’s qualities can serve as metaphors for broader understanding and critical discourse. They fuse this expertise with their core interests: to imagine how art and design can tangibly evoke past, current, and future narratives for a richer experience of place.
Art and architecture share an integral relationship, meeting at many points including visual, spatial and auditory expression. The unique realm of LeuWebb Projects lives within the space shared by art and architecture, their practice fueling hybrid forms and new directions within the contemporary visual arts tradition.
LeuWebb’s artistic practice operates at a range of scales and their curatorial and original installation and sculpture projects have garnered international attention for ingenuity and resonance, both in form and concept. Their immersive, multi-modal environments are never limited to a familiar set of materials, often instead inspired by the visceral qualities of the site itself. Light, texture and sound are key components of their practice that they weave together through the innovative use of materials and responsive technologies to create art that is not only seen, but also experienced.
