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.

On Collaboration

We recently shared our perspectives on collaborating as part of the 2016 Toronto Design Offsite Festival’s TO DO Talks: Collaborate and Listen Thursday, January 21st, in The Gladstone Hotel’s Ballroom. Central to our conversation was the piece we created for that space in 2011, The Ballroom of Sounding Light.
Along with Symon Oliver (Also Collective), Stanley Sun (Mason Studio), Steven Beites (Studio Kimiis), Viz Saraby (Invention Squad), and  William Haskas (+Collective), we chatted about the enriching and sometimes challenging processes involved in successful collaboration.

Radiantactivity at the Drake Devonshire

We recently mounted our piece ‘Radiantactivity’ at the Drake Devonshire Hotel in Wellington, Prince Edward County, Ontario. The commissioned work integrates with the hotel’s cladding and fronts onto a soon-to-be poured skating rink to take advantage of the joys of winter. Stay tuned for ice skating updates!

“Resilience Lies Between the Artist and the Engineer” described how the inspired pairing of artists (us) and clean tech energy entrepreneurs (Hydrostor) yielded unexpectedly rich results.

Artists Selected

We’ve completed our final project selections for Grow Op 2016 and to say we’re excited about the collection of work would be an understatement. Collaborating with a diverse jury and co-curator Graham Teeple, we’ve assembled a broad range of projects from artists working in the fields of landscape architecture, horticulture, painting, photography, sculpture, community engagement and all combinations in between. Stay tuned for details as we gear up to the April 2016 exhibition!

Skulptursymposium, Denmark

LeuWebb Projects was recently invited to Denmark to participate in the Gaesteatelier Hollufgard’s Tilsynekomster International Sculpture Symposium 2015. The intensive 10 day forum provided lively discourse and a fertile environment to develop project ideas for site-based works that will be further gestated leading to installation within the grounds of Hollufgard in June, 2016.

An exhibition of the project sketches and models is on view at the Gaesteatelier through October, 2015.

Additional documentation of the symposium’s proceedings are now online.

Catylising Creativity

Our friends from Ross Curtner and Scott Baker from Adjacent Possibilities talked about working with LeuWebb Projects and offered lessons learned for models of engagement between artists and non-artists alike as part of their discussion at the Creative Catalyst Symposium on Art & Social Innovation.

In conversation with artist, researcher and professor Filiz Klassen, the Weathering Climate Change: Bridging Art and Innovation talk examined how we can meaningfully connect the worlds of innovation with art and culture to address complex social issues like climate change.
