Bringing colour photographs and original objects together in a dynamic installation, the CUTMR Retrospective Show runs from January 20-30, 2011.
More about CUTMR
Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative design event. Curated by Jeremy Vandermeij and Deborah Wang, CUTMR invites artists and designers to show us what goes on inside their heads. Coming together in dialogue and collaboration, participants are limited only by their imaginations, making CUTMR one of the most exciting shows in Toronto.Â The four-day exhibition is in its 8th year at the Gladstone Hotel, featuring 11 rooms and 14 public space installations, design talks and curatorial tours.
How does it work?
CUTMR is comprised of room installations and public space projects that literally take over the Gladstone Gallery and other public spaces of the hotel.Â Curators select participating designers and artists based on their past work and experience. Once these creative individuals and collectives have been selected, they are given a public space or one of the 11 exhibition rooms on the hotelâ€™s second floor. Curators consult and discuss public space projects with their makers, but know next to nothing about the room installations. This approach, inherited from CUTMR founding curators Christina Zeidler and Pamila Mathru, ensures that the artists and designers are given the freedom to rock out â€“ creating new, site specific installations that are the ultimate artistic, inventive and/or spatial expression. The final results are art and design mash-ups that challenge our pre-conditioned notions of both disciplines. In this show, participants are pathfinders, continually pushing the limits and exploring new territories, opening up new worlds for every one to inhabit. Our strategy means that at this point we can only tempt you with what participants have done before and imagine what they will create for CUTMR 2011.
