'MODES OF CREATIVITY'

SOHO HOUSE TORONTO 2023

WE CELEBRATED SOME OF OUR FAVOURITE COLLABORATIONS TO DATE WITH A CREATIVE PANEL TALK, BRINGING TOGETHER RECENT PARTNERS, CHEF BRANDON OLSEN, SPENCER BADU & JEREMY JOO AS WELL AS THE COPS’ FOUNDER, ALEXANDER WHITE.

WITH THE ARTISTS COMING FROM VARIOUS CREATIVE FIELDS, FROM SPACIAL AND FASHION DESIGN TO CULINARY ARTS, THE CONVERSATION EXPLORED THE INTERSECTION OF ART IN ITS BOUNDLESS FORMS.

THE PANEL WAS FOLLOWED BY AN AFTER PARTY, WHERE WE UNVEILED ONE OF OUR LATEST EVENT INSTALLATIONS BY JEREMY JOO.

ADDITIONALLY, WE SHOWCASED PRINTS HIGHLIGHTING OUR PARTNERSHIPS FROM THIS PAST YEAR, REMAINING ON DISPLAY UNTIL THE END OF 2023.

'TEMPLE GATE' BY JEREMY JOO

TORONTO 2023

WE PARTNERED WITH TORONTO-BASED ARTISAN, JEREMY JOO, ON A CUSTOM EVENT INSTALLATION PIECE.


WITH JEREMY’S PRIMARY FOCUS ON FURNITURE, OBJECTS AND SPACES SPIRITED BY THE PROPORTIONS AND FORMS WITHIN ASIA AND AFRICA, ‘TEMPLE GATE’ STRIKES THE TENSION BETWEEN THE SIMPLE AND COMPLEX, CONCOMITANT OF THE EBB AND FLOW OF MEMORY AND TIME.


THIS INSTALLATION WILL BE USED FOR EVENTS IN TORONTO AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS.

'OUT OF BOUNDS' EXHIBITION

TORONTO 2023

COPS’ DEBUT EXHIBITION, ‘OUT OF BOUNDS’, AT CRY BABY GALLERY, WHERE WE CHALLENGED TRADITIONAL ARTISTIC BOUNDARIES. 


WE’RE REIMAGINING THE LOCAL DOUGHNUT SHOP AS A GLOBAL CREATIVE STUDIO, ASKING “CAN ANYTHING BE ART?” AND WE BELIEVE THE ANSWER IS A RESOUNDING “YES.” 


THE EXHIBITION WAS A SENSORY EXPERIENCE INVITING THE VIEWERS TO PUSH CREATIVE LIMITS AND VENTURE WITH US ‘OUT OF BOUNDS.’
