The Gladstone Hotel’s 13th Annual Alternative Design Event
January 21-25, 2016
Coinciding with Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TODO) and the Interior Design Show
Submissions Deadline: May 15, 2015
Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) is an alternative design exhibition that provides a platform for experimentation outside the norms of art and design, 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. Framed within the backdrop of the historic 120-year-old Gladstone Hotel, CUTMR invites artists and designers to create site-specific, immersive installations that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike.
The 13th installment of CUTMR will take place between January 21 and January 25, 2016. We invite you to summit proposals as individuals or as collectives, and multidisciplinary teams are encouraged. This call is open to Canadian and international participants. For more information please visit: comeuptomyroom.com
