Allied Arts Medal 2017

We’re happy to announce that Christine Leu, on behalf of LeuWebb Projects, has been awarded the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s (RAIC) Allied Arts Medal for 2017.

The RAIC bestows the Allied Arts Medal every two years. The award honours a Canadian artist or designer for outstanding achievement in artwork created to be integrated with architecture. Any medium allied to architecture is eligible including murals, sculpture, glass, fabric, lighting, furniture, water, sound, site-specific installation, video, digital and industrial and landscape design.

“Each one of Christine Leu’s permanent works and temporary installations manifests a thoughtful and thought-provoking approach to its architectural or environmental context,” said the three-member jury.

“This is an extraordinary body of work that bridges art and architecture,” said the jury. “It demonstrates skill in response to site interpretation. There is a high-quality craft element.”

The medal will be formally presented in May at the RAIC’s Festival of Architecture in Ottawa.

Inside and Out

We had a blast in ushering in the celebrations around this year’s Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival by creating an installation for the Launch Party in collaboration with multimedia artist Roxanne Luchak.

Held at the St. James Cathedral Centre, the event was followed later in the month by the Opening Party, where we mounted a variation on our piece again with Roxanne, this time at the TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Malaparte.

in/FUTURE

Our proposal Flotsam/Jetsam was selected for the groundbreaking exhibition in/FUTURE: A Transformative Art Experience to take place at Ontario Place this fall.
From September 15-25, 2016, the west island of Ontario Place will be transformed into a hub of artistic and performance activities. Located on the pebbled shore of the island will be Flotsam/Jetsam, a series of cast future relics and fragments of Ontario Place – invoking the park’s past as a utopian dream and the potential future of the island as an archaeological ruin.
