Gladstone Hotel's Grow Op 2017
Wed, 19 Apr 2017, 7:00 PM – Sun, 23 Apr 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
Why do we leave the comforts of our home to go camping in a tent? Why do we bring plants and animals in our homes to share our lives with us? What is left after a forest fire? A flood? A drought?
In conjunction with Gladstone Art Hut installation by Rui Pimenta + Layne Hinton, Grow Op at the Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, celebrates its fifth year as an exhibition of art and design that cultivates ideas across a broad range of disciplines, examining how humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay and life.
#GrowOp2017 employs the tools of art, craft and design to question our conceptions of urban and wild, culture and nature for the upcoming juried exhibition, curated by Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects with Lukus Toane. Grow Op was founded by Victoria Taylor & Christina Zeidler.
Grow Op’s installation works engage participants through sight, touch, sound, and taste to create a landscape of immersive experience. Interdisciplinary collaborations are encouraged, combining creative practitioners such as: artists, biologists, historians, anthropologists, musicians, botanists, architects, poets, craftspeople, chefs, geographers, filmmakers, ecologists, performers, landscape architects, writers, planners, agriculturalists and more.
