Alternative Design Event
The Gladstone Hotel
Toronto, Ontario
January 26 – 29, 2012

The Gladstone Hotel seeks Expressions of Interest for innovative, cutting-edge, contemporary design and installation-based projects for The Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative design event, COME UP TO MY ROOM. The ninth instalment of CUTMR will take place from January 26 to 29, 2012 at the historic Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto. Site-specific work will be mounted in the rooms and public spaces in the second floor Gladstone Gallery and ground floor spaces of the hotel.

Ideal candidates for juried consideration are practitioners who approach their discipline with a radical personal vision, and who use design to converse, connect, collaborate and construct delight in the unexpected.

There are two ways to participate in COME UP TO MY ROOM 2012:
1. Immersive Room Installation

Participants will create new work that is site-specific and installation-based.

The CUTMR curatorial process is unique in that we select the artist/designer/teams for rooms installations based on past work only, and then trust them 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, that is a core premise of the show, CUTMR lends itself to transience, and is never presented the same way twice. Please do not send a specific proposal for the room. Only describe your practice and show past projects.

Key words for the room installations are immersive and spatial.

2. Site-Specific Public Space Project (including hallways, lobbies and interstitial spaces):

Participants will create functional lighting, seating, wall-based projects, or a functional bar, DJ table, or CUTMR ticket desk.

Unlike the room installations, participants submitting for a public space project MUST include details of specific works to be exhibited in the show. All participants are required to showcase new work and are asked to produce work specifically for CUTMR 2012. Please include as much detail as possible on your proposal for the space, as well as images of your previous work. Drawings, descriptions, etc., of your proposed project are essential.

$700 + HST for room installations
$195 + HST for public space projects

Fees include three installation days and four-day space rental; exhibition administration and coordination; inclusion in the promotion, publicity, marketing materials, exhibition catalogue, and cross-promotion with the Toronto Design Offsite (TO DO) List. Fees are payable upon acceptance.

Several past participants have been successful in obtaining exhibition assistance grants and sponsorships.
