Ferris Bueller's bedroom to be recreated in Toronto
You'll want to play hooky to visit the Gladstone Hotel's 13th annual Come Up To My Room art and design exhibition because a Toronto artist will be recreating a bedroom you might've dreamed about in the past, especially if you're a fan of John Hughes' movies.
Sarah Keenlyside's project looks like it's going to be 31 flavours of awesome because she's transforming one of the Gladstone's 120-year-old hotel suites into Ferris Bueller's bedroom.
"I like to call it an exercise of extreme nostalgia," says Keenlyside in a short video posted to the Gladstone's Instagram.
Keenlyside and her creative collaborator Joseph Clement launched what they call a "world-wide scavenger hunt" to source 1980s-era items - including an E-MU II Emulator, a Bertoia side chair and a Charlie Sexton Pictures for Pleasure poster - necessary for an authentic Ferris Bueller experience.
"I thought, wouldn't it be fun to create an immersive experience where people could explore a room that perhaps they'd fantasized about as teenagers," Keenlyside continues in the Instagram clip.
Come Up To My Room runs from January 21 to 24; if you don't move fast, you could miss it.
