Come Up To My Room

Deadline Extended to: June 13, 2014 {EMAIL} or {RECEIVE}

Come Up To My Room (CUTMR)
12th Annual Alternative Design Event
Gladstone Hotel

Toronto, ON
Pop Up Exhibition: January 16, 205 to January 25, 2015
3rd & 4th Floor Exhibition: January 12, 2015 to March 29, 2015

The CUTMR curatorial process is unique in that we select the art/designer/teams for room installations based on past work only, and then work with theme in an open and trusting dialogue to create a site-specific installation following their own personal vision. We choose you but we don't know what you will do with your space until we "come up to your room." Due to this kind of curatorial process--the core premise of the show--CUTMR lends itself to transience and is never presented the same way twice.

Describe your practice, show past projects, and provide a loose description of what you would like to do but focus on showing your potential.

One rule: If you created a room last year, please do not apply for a room this year.

  1. Main Floor: Proposals for activating our food and beverage areas are welcome as well as cafe installation and Melody Bar installation (some limitations due to service).
  2. Second Floor Immersive Room Installation: Participants will create new work that is site-specific nd installation-based.
  3. Site-Specific Public Space Project: Participants will create functional or performative pieces that engage visitors throughout the hotel.
  4. (New this year)3rd and 4th Floor Proposals: This portion of the exhibition will orient visitors to Toronto's vibrant alternative design scene.
  5. Public Spaces & Ideas for Consideration: These spaces have different requirements. View prospectus for complete details.

Exhibition Fees:
$600 + HST for room installations
$250 + HST for public space projects

Fees include installation and space rental for the run of the exhibition; exhibition administration and coordination; inclusion in the promotion, publicity, exhibition catalog, and cross-promotion with the Toronto Design Offsite (TO DO) List.
