The title of Neil Young’s 1979 album Rust Never Sleeps speaks to the concept behind this exhibition of work by five artists who employ naturally occurring growth—salt, mould, rust, flowers and lichen spores—as their materials. The resulting works address commodity, use value, causality, chance and instability.

The Gladstone Hotel is proud to present Grow Op 2016 from April 21-24, an annual art exhibition that boasts over 30 thought-provoking installations. With projects that probe our relationship to nature, Grow Op invites a dialogue about ecology and the environment, public spaces, urbanism and the future of Toronto. The exhibition brings together a range of diciplines to showcase innovative ideas and conceptual responses to landscape, art and horticulture. With these intersections, new ideas emerge. Join us in the Ballroom on Wednesday April 20 from 8-10pm for a free and lively discussion that will bring these ideas to life.
So let’s talk! Zahra Ebrahim will speak with Jason Logan (artist and entrepreneur with Toronto Ink Company), Natasha Myers (Associate Professor of Anthropology and Director of the Plant Studies Collaboratory at York University) and Joaquin Sevillano (twice exhibiting Grow Op artist and designer with LandArtDesign.)
Wednesday, 20 April 2016 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
