Grow Op 2017
April 19 - April 23
Explore 4 Floors of Earth Inspired Installations at Toronto’s Greenest Art Exhibition
Why do we leave the comforts of our home to go camping in a tent? Why do we bring plants and animals in our homes to share our lives with us? What is left after a forest fire? A flood? A drought?
Grow Op 2017 celebrates its fifth year as an exhibition of art and design that cultivates ideas across a broad range of disciplines, examining how humans and other species live within and without natural systems of growth, change, abundance, scarcity, decay and life.
Grow Op’s installation works engage participants through sight, touch, sound, and taste to create a landscape of immersive experience. Many works this year combine creative practitioners such as: artists, biologists, historians, anthropologists, musicians, botanists, architects, poets, craftspeople, chefs, geographers, filmmakers, ecologists, performers, landscape architects, writers, planners, agriculturalists and more!
The OALA will once again be sponsoring the event, awarding a $1000 award to one of the participants. The OALA’s Ground Magazine will also have a table featured at the Sunday Gets Dirtier fair.
This year’s exhibition is curated by Christine Leu and Alan Webb of LeuWebb Projects with Lukus Toane.
