Come Up to My Room will “twist perspectives” from January 21 to 24, 2016

The Gladstone Hotel, Toronto’s oldest continually operating hotel with a history stretching over 125 years, is preparing for its annual exhibition of spatial exploration and sensory engagement, Come Up to My Room (CUTMR). With new curators, immersive installations, and more thought provocation than ever before, #CUTMR2016 will be the canvas by which Toronto locals and international tourists alike paint their understandings of the relationship between art, design and spaces from January 21 to 24, 2016.

Acting as a counterpoint to the Interior Design Show (IDS) and the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO), CUTMR has become a cornerstone of the Toronto alternative design scene. This year’s event, the 13th edition, once again showcases the work of new and established artists, designers and collectives from Canada and the United States.

Coming from the fields of architecture and exhibition design, this year’s curators, Jana Macalik and Nuria Montblanch, have reengaged with the heritage of CUTMR, focusing on the spatial sensory experiences and design as the medium. CUTMR participating designers have been encouraged to identify discursive opportunities, altering perceptions of space and place.

Come Up To My Room’s full programming and artist line-up will be announced in the coming weeks.
