Deadline: September 20, 2019 at midnight.
The Gladstone Hotel and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers (CEAD) are excited to announce the return of the Come Up To My Room Career Launcher; taking place January 16 - January 19, 2020 at the Gladstone Hotel.
Come Up To My Room invites OCAD U graduates to propose a site-specific, immersive installation that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors alike. Successful applicant(s) will transform a hotel room into a complete immersive, “otherworldly” environment art installation. In addition to the exhibition opportunity, the Career Launcher recipient will also receive a production grant from the CEAD.
Framed within the backdrop of the historic 130-year-old Gladstone Hotel, CUTMR is an alternative design exhibition that provides a platform for experimentation outside the norms of art and design, at the edges between intention and interpretation. Freed from the constraints of traditional practice, CUTMR encourages spatial exploration that engages our senses, our memories and our perceptions of reality.
OCAD U and The Gladstone Hotel are committed to promoting substantive equality for equity-seeking groups that are under-represented in the creative sector. We encourage applications from art and design graduates of equity-seeking communities including racialized and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, and persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities / expressions.
If not already made evident in the written material, applicants can voluntarily self-identify with any of these communities in their submission. Please review the following definitions for more info: bit.ly/OCADU_self_identification http://bit.ly/OCADU_self_identification
Must be a student or recent grad of OCAD U (2018 or 2019)
