If Walls Could Talk: Another Art Hotel Opportunity

Artist Marketing Resources blog has posted about a variety of Art Hotel opportunities over the years, and many art hotels are included in our Art Consultant list.

This call is from an art hotel, the Gladstone, in Toronto–

Call for Submissions: Experiential Illustration Show, Gladstone Hotel, closes June 13

Call for Submissions: If Walls Could Talk, Gladstone Hotel

The Gladstone Hotel’s Experiential Illustration Show
March 6 to 16, 2014
Deadline for Submissions: Thursday, June 13, 2013

Attention: Illustrators, painters, designers, comic artists, textile artists, graffiti writers, street artists, mixed media artists, typographers, printmakers, animators, new media artists, craftspeople and all non-lens-based visual artists.

The Gladstone Hotel seeks expressions of interest for contemporary, experiential projects for its inaugural illustration event, If Walls Could Talk. This group exhibition will take place March 6 – 16, 2014 at the historic Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto.

If Walls Could Talk will challenge Canadian and international artists to work outside their traditional practices—to occupy and alter spaces in dramatic, conceptual, or experimental ways. The majority of the site-specific work will be localized on the hotel’s second floor, but we encourage applicants to consider proposing projects for all public spaces throughout the hotel.

Artists may participate independently or in collaboration with a partner, or as a team. Ideal candidates for juried consideration are practitioners who approach their disciplines with a radical personal vision. These artists/designers use illustration—or a practice related to illustration—to converse, connect, collaborate, and construct. Successful projects will create delight in the unexpected.


Diti Katona: founding partner and creative director, Concrete Design
Gary Taxali: fine artist and illustrator
Jason Logan: author, illustrator, designer, and creative director of Rogers Publishing
Mikey Richardson: co-owner and creative director, AmoebaCorp
Paul Dallas: chair of Illustration, OCAD University
Virginia Johnson: illustrator, textile designer, and owner of Virginia Johnson Lifestyle
Zak Mroueh: president, executive creative director and founder, Zulu Alpha Kilo

There are two ways to participate:

Immersive Room Installation

  • Create new work that is site-specific and installation-based. Key words for room installations are immersive, spatial, experiential, and interactive.

Site-Specific Public Space Project

  • Spaces to consider:
 main spaces and hallways adjacent to the second floor gallery; public areas throughout the hotel, including the stairwell, elevator shaft, Melody Bar, café, and lower green roof.

To submit to If Walls Could Talk, please email your expression of interest (PDF only) to before 11 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, June 13, 2013.

Submissions must include:

  • CV, contact information (email and phone), and bio (minimum 100 words, including preferred medium) for all participating artists.
  • Link(s) to artist website(s), if applicable. Provide 5–10 images of past works or projects, with notations indicating medium and dimensions of depicted pieces.
  • Description of a proposed exhibition that is specific to If Walls Could Talk. Please describe the project you plan to create, detailing the medium(s) and materials you will use. Indicate clearly whether you are applying for a room installation or public space, and estimate dimensions of the work you intend to create.

Once selected, each participant will have the opportunity to discuss their project further with the curator. The curator will also be available to discuss work as it develops.

NOTE: Several past participants of Gladstone Hotel art events have successfully obtained exhibition assistance grants and sponsorships.
