A number of artists affiliated with the Daniels Faculty will be participating in this year’s Gladstone Grow Op exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel. The annual event celebrates innovative ideas in the fields of landscape architecture, garden design, art, and place-making. Using video, sound performance, photography, new media, animal parts, the human body, and more, Grow Op promises to make us think differently about the landscapes that shape our cities and our cities’ relationship to the land. This year’s exhibition was juried by Andrea Mantin (MLA 2009), Victoria Taylor (MLA 2008), Layne Hilton, and Graham Teeple.
Daniels students, alumni, and faculty participating in the 2017 Gladstone Grow Op include Jordan Duke and Dayne Roy-Caldwell (both MLA 2016), Katie Lawson (current MVS-Curatorial student), D & S Projects — the firm of alumna Katie Strang (MLA 2015) and Christine Dewancker — Lecturer Shadi Ramos (MLA 2010), and PseudoStudio — the firm of Greg Bunker and Shira Davis (both MLA 2013).
Other artists include David Ballantine, Melanie Billark, Bruno Billio, Liam Blackwell, Micah Donovan, Agnieszka Forfa, Eve Gane, Julie Gladstone, Martha Barron Griffith, Monica Gutierrez, John Haney, Byron Hodgins, Rebecca Jane Houston, Hayden King and Susan Blight, Aisling O’Carroll & Sara Jacobs, Olga Klosowski, Becky Lauzon, Lindy Wilkins & Dushan Milic, Michelle Hunniford & Magdalena Milosz, Kate & Claire Nelischer, Rachel Grice & Rekha Ramachandran, Safiya Randera, Daniel Ranger, Miles Rufelds, and The Urban Apothecary.
