Gladstone Hotel’s 3rd annual Grow Op exhibition greets spring with open arms from April 23rd to 26th, 2015. Curated by Victoria Taylor and Graham Teeple with Britt Welter-Nolan, this four-day exhibition celebrates innovative ideas and conceptual responses to landscape, gardens, art, and place-making under this year’s theme, the culture of landscape.
Grow Op 2015 facilitates a multi-disciplinary forum across a broad range of creative practices. One of the most intriguing annual exhibitions in Toronto, Grow Op encourages an array of perspectives and dialogues surrounding landscape and place. It challenges our understanding of nature and the built environment around us.
How can landscape architecture be a driving force in the creation of sustainable cities? How can design not only enhance the lived experiences of citizens and communities, but also improve urban infrastructure and functionality? What does a contemporary culture of landscape in relation to our cities look like? What does it sound like? Feel like? These questions are imbued in the multitude of jury selected artworks, accompanying talks, tours, parties and even a fair of local organizations focused on urban agriculture at Grow Op Gets Dirtier.
