Cutler and Gross Toronto - Call for Submissions

Calling all Toronto-based artists:

Cutler and Gross Toronto, is now accepting submissions from local artists to present their work in the window display of 758 Queen Street West.

The Artist of the Month Program is an opportunity for artists to showcase their work in our entry window display. This project will introduce a different artist (or group of artists) to the West Queen West Neighborhood, our elite clientele, and to the constant street traffic of Trinity Bellwoods. We will help spread the word by sending out an introductory press release to fashion and design media in Toronto.

We’ve had great success in the past, hosting installations from a variety of artists. Flore Synthetica, a piece by Nomadic Vision Collective was originally designed for the Gladstone Hotel’s Grow OP exhibit, it was then moved to our display and kept alive for much longer. We have also been part of Toronto Design Offsite Festival’s storefront project for a few years, presenting works from artist such as Libbs Elliot, Shaun Motsi, and Helen Dreifelds. Most recently, our front display has been taken over by installation artist Audrey Assad, photographer Moira Ness, and fiber artist Mary Dyja.

Deadline to submit your proposal is June 20th, 2017.

To submit: Send a resume/CV (if available) as well as a proposal for your installation - including any media you may have of your proposed and/or past work, including websites and artist biographies.

About Cutler and Gross

British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross, founded in 1969, creates sunglasses and optical frames with signature creativity and an excellent handcrafted quality. Since its establishment in fashion’s halcyon days, Cutler and Gross has been synonymous with quintessential British style, creativity and craftsmanship and produces the highest quality frames, made in Italy. Cutler and Gross frames do not feature a logo. A design mark notable by its absence, frames are identified not by the logo but by quality and design. The brand’s bold creativity has attracted many designer collaborations such as Erdem, Giles Deacon, Victoria Beckham, Maison Martin Margiela and Bella Freud.
