the Glad­stone’s an­nual art takeover

Toronto Life - - Cutlure -

Dur­ing Come Up to My Room, ev­ery inch of the Glad­stone Ho­tel gets cov­ered with quirky, site-spe­cific in­stal­la­tions, like a bed­room made of pa­per and a scrappy skate­boarder’s club­house (pic­tured be­low). Among the 30 pieces on dis­play this year: “First Gen­tri­fi­ca­tion,” sus­pended sculp­tures made from con­struc­tion de­bris sourced from Toronto’s chang­ing neigh­bour­hoods; “En­hancer,” an in­ter­ac­tive chan­de­lier that glows and dims in re­sponse to guests’ move­ments; and, re­peat­ing one of the event’s most mem­o­rable in­stal­la­tions from years past, a vir­tual-re­al­ity recre­ation of Fer­ris Bueller’s bed­room.
