The Gladstone Hotel and the Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers are thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2020 Come Up To My Room Career Launcher, Maxwell Lander and Aaron Jones.
Framed within the backdrop of the historic 130-year-old Gladstone Hotel, Come up to My Room 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.
Aaron Jones will be showing a large collage work titled Homework and Maxwell Lander will be exhibiting Cyb3r, an immersive, multimedia, installation. To learn more about Maxwell and Aaron’s artworks and about the Come Up to My Room Career Launcher, visit our Career Launcher website.
As part of the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, the Career Development office supports the professional development of emerging OCAD U creative talent. The Career Launchers program offers unique, high-profile opportunities developed in partnership with industry leaders in order to help senior students and new graduates start their professional practice after school.
Prefix ICA welcomes you to celebrate the holiday season and to take a peek at the work-in-progress of our first artists-in-residence: Aaron Jones, Cameron Lamothe, Joel Lee and Bidemi Oloyede.
Over the past six weeks, these four artists have carried out research and initiated new projects inspired by questions, ideas and conversations drawn from Prefix's programming history. Their work questions our understanding of the Canadian landscape, how communities relate to place, and the connection between everyday objects and personal histories.
Prefix's Self-Directed Research Residency is presented in partnership with the OCAD University Career Launchers Program ands supported by Barbara Astman's Project 31 Fundraiser donation.
