The Gladstone Hotel’s Annual Alternative Design Event

January 19-22, 2017
Opening Party: Saturday Jan. 21, 7-10pm

Framed within the backdrop of the historic 126-year-old Gladstone Hotel, Come Up To My Room invites artists and designers to create 4 Day site-specific, immersive installations that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike. #CUTMR2017 will feature over 20 Projects with over 65 participants! 

In it's 14th year, This year’s CUTMR Curators Jana Macalik and Christophe Jivraj challenge participants to consider the notion of Transplant. Our relationship with the world and those around us, from local to global and our exchanges in-between have been affected by global issues, media and digital social interaction. Ideas, knowledge and culture expressed in the exchanges between individuals are constantly evolving; transferred from one place to another. The act of transplantation is a phenomenon to be explored. Everything converges and diverges to reemerge as a collective entity, translated into experiences and things that we have yet to foresee. If so, are we going to be immersed in disruptive or disciplined environments? Through our dealings with the fast evolving environment surrounding us – designers and artists in a global context – we are left working to define our place in the chaos.

Exhibition Hours: Thursday Jan 19 6-8pm | Friday Jan 20 11am-10pm | Saturday Jan 21 11am-10pm (opening) | Sunday Jan 22 11am-5pm
