Come Up to My Room (CUTMR) is the Gladstone Hotel's annual alternative design exhibition. What differentiates the artists and designers who show at CUTMR each year is their willingness to take risks, to push their ideas, to evoke meaning not just function. They’ve been working for months. They will transform all four floors of the hotel with their immersive installations. We still don’t know what it will look like, what direction everyone took—and we won’t know until the doors open. Join the design surprise from Jan 19-22!
CUTMR was conceived in 2004 by Christina Zeidler and Pamila Matharu as a vehicle for experimentation and interaction within the fields of art and design. Acting as counterpoint to the Interior Design Show (IDS) and giving rise to the more recent Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO), CUTMR has since become a cornerstone of the Toronto alternative design scene. Over the years, CUTMR has featured the work of hundreds of artists and designers from Canada and abroad, and continuously challenged participants to push their everyday practice by offering a blank canvas upon which to explore new themes and ways of working.
