Hard Twist – New Twist

Gladstone Hotel
Toronto ON
November 6, 2009 to January 4, 2010

The Gladstone Hotel invites artists working in fibre-related media to submit proposals for installations and wall-hung works for the Gladstone’s fourth annual juried show of textile-based art.

Hard Twist – New Twist calls for work that sees textile through the lens of pop culture and uses cutting-edge technologies and contemporary media to reinvent textile traditions.

Hanging/Installation - Physical Criteria:

All pieces must be able to be hung/installed securely.
The security hardware supplied by the Gladstone is 2 ¼" x 1" (5.5cm x 1.5 cm), and needs a mount ¾" (1.5cm) thick to accommodate the screws.
Artists whose work is accepted for the show and the nature of whose work makes this type of hanger impractical or undesirable will be encouraged to discuss alternatives with the curators.

Admin fee: $150 + GST = $157.50 to be paid to hotel on acceptance

Submissions: There is no submission fee; the admin fee is only paid to hotel only on acceptance.

Entries may be submitted by email or surface mail.
