LeuWebb Projects is curating the upcoming Grow Op 2016 exhibition at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel. Grow Op is seeking proposals that employ the tools of art, craft and design to reframe our understanding of the shifting boundaries between urban and wild, culture and nature.
Can we use the lake to commute to work? Will local food be able to feed us all? What if pigs were our composters? How did that bear get into my backyard?
From community gardening initiatives to experimental landscapes to disruptive art projects, we seek proposals from individuals and collectives whose work engages with landscape, place and habitats with the goal of creating an experiential exhibition of high quality that is evocative and inspiring.
The historic Gladstone Hotel offers a unique venue to engage a large audience in a dialogue about the qualities and meaning behind the designed and altered landscape, from the condo balcony to the public square and territories beyond.
One of the most intriguing annual exhibitions in Toronto, Grow Op encourages an array of perspectives and dialogues that challenge our perceptions of nature, the built environment and our influences on both.
The submission call is open through to September 30, 2015.
