This year CUTMR welcomes 25 individuals and collectives drawn from the worlds of architecture, industrial design, fashion, and contemporary art to transform the Gladstone Hotel both inside and out with site-specific and immersive installations. For the first time, CUTMR will break through the walls of this historic venue, adding design installations to the hotel’s exterior and surroundings. Site-specific furniture, lighting, and art will push the boundaries of design throughout the Romanesque red brick of the hotel’s gallery rooms, public spaces, and beyond. The exterior installations will be created primarily by CUTMR alumni, including Rob Southcott, Orest Tataryn, the Brothers Dressler, with newcomers Michal Maciej Bartosik and Greenbelt Arts.
