Queen Street West, you’ve changed. The Gladstone Hotel is embracing this ongoing change with an innovative project that will transform a former doughnut shop across the street into the Gladstone Art Hut: an art gallery and incubator for Toronto artists. The project hopes to spark conversations about the history while imagining the future of this site and others like it in our city—imbued with largely forgotten memories and on the cusp of transformation.
In only 6 months, the empty storefront property will become a condo sales centre, and eventually a multi-story condominium will be erected. Until then, it will act as an extension of the Gladstone Hotel’s many experimental art-activated social spaces, facilitating new ideas, creative expression, collaboration, and new ways of experiencing art, culture and community.
In April, using 20 hours of recorded conversations captured during the FORMS Summit held in Toronto in September 2016, Endless City will propose to transform the Gladstone Art Hut into an immersive audiovisual and speech-to-text installation that will transform these conservations into live art for outside observers to view, contemplate and react to.
