January 18 - January 24, 2016
78 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Y7, Canada
As part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO), running January 18-24, 2016, TO DO project
‘Outside the Box’ recognizes and promotes Toronto as an epicenter for design. It does so in two principal ways as the instigator of this serial project, and as a host city for the work of others at the annual Toronto Design Offsite Festival. Each project begins with selecting correspondents — leading curators and designers in each participating city — to create a collection of thoughtfully designed objects that will fit into a standard Bankers box. These boxes are shipped to a selected city (e.g. Toronto and New York) for exhibition to showcase contemporary design and the talents of each city.
This third edition of ‘Outside the Box’ features responses on the theme “multiple.” Multiples are numerous and often varied, but share common characteristics or qualities. They have several parts, elements, or members, in a relationship. City correspondents and curators are invited to explore “multiple” in any of its definitions. We welcome all creative interpretations on the theme.
