DesignTO is Where Art & Design Meet this January!

Toronto, Canada

DesignTO

Currently in full swing, DesignTO, formerly the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, is where art and design meet from January 18-27, 2019. 

Toronto, Canada, 2019-01-24 - 

With more art and design than ever, there is still time to experience the Festival’s largest offering of events, exhibitions, and installations.

Twenty times larger than its inaugural year, the Festival is a place where creatives can explore and experiment, pushing the boundaries of what art and design can be. Addressing social and political topics, DesignTO is about furniture and home accessories, but also so much more. With over 100 free events, the Festival creates a space where art and design are inclusive and accessible.


“Yes we have exhibitions and installations in white cube gallery spaces, but we also occupy the spaces not typically associated with art and design. Spaces like shop and restaurant windows, or condominium and office lobbies,” Michael Madjus, Marketing Director, DesignTO.


In addition to the DesignTO Projects, the Festival will see over 100 independent projects including Luvere Studio’s ‘Light Cage Duo’ at Bulthaup, a series based on the subject of death with exhibitions like ‘Constellations: Exploring the family experience of death & Dying’ and ‘Ghost Stories’, objects inspired by the human body in the exhibition ‘Elbow Room’, the intricacies of queer online intimacy at ‘All Bound Up’, as well as the often rare dialogue between Black and Indigenous makers in ‘One Who Protects a Sibling’. No topic is too small or taboo.


With over 100 independent projects taking place at the 2019 Festival, DesignTO will have more self-produced projects than ever before. In collaboration with a number of partners, the DesignTO Festival will see the return of staples such as the fourth annual DesignTO Symposium: Unlocking the Future of Work, the Festival thematic exhibition, Surface Tension, and the prototype exhibition Work/Life produced in collaboration with Canadian product design company Umbra. New programming will include DesignTO’s first graphic design exhibition Design Unseen, the DesignTO Guided Bus Tours led by local design and art experts, a number of DesignTO Talks with designers including Tiffany Pratt, internationally renowned London-based design duo Studio Swine, and so much more!


The DesignTO Festival transforms Toronto into a hub for creativity, taking art and design out of the studio and into the urban sphere, bringing people together to celebrate contemporary culture. DesignTO provides opportunities for emerging talent and engages the community with exceptional and accessible public programming. Brave the cold and step inside.

With this work, Cat Lamora questions the affect of expatriation in Korean-Canadian gyopos selfhood, and the deafening loneliness produced by the conflict of navigating the culture one is born into versus the newly adopted. Having to lead a life of duality between  two names, two cultures, and two homes, the piece seeks to express the balancing act that gyopos struggle to reconcile with. - Photo credit: Philip Leonard Ocampo
