Thirteen…an unlucky number for some, but not for Come Up to My Room (CUTMR). This year’s event, the 13th edition, will showcase the work of new and established artists, designers and collectives from Canada and the US. Framed within the backdrop of the historic Gladstone Hotel, #CUTMR2016 invites artists to inhabit three floors with site-specific, immersive installations that stimulate the imagination and encourage discussion and dialogue between contributors and visitors.

Coming from the fields of architecture and exhibition design, this year’s curators, Jana Macalik and Nuria Montblanch have reengaged with the heritage of CUTMR, focusing on the spatial sensory experiences and design as the medium.

The show acts as an incubator for designers and artists to make work that challenges the design status quo by pushing it into the realm of contemporary art. The show has gained a reputation as a "transitional" space that creates trust for the artist to take real risk in their practice, as we do not curate by project but rather by artist. By trusting the artist, we as curators take real risk , risk of failure, to create a truly dynamic show.

As the show is all new work, it has never been seen before and the work will even be a surprise to the curators.
