Brad Hindson has practiced architecture and lighting design at some of Canada’s top firms. Working at internationally-acclaimed architecture firms KPMB and Diamond + Schmitt Architects, Hindson has contributed to the design of numerous high-profile buildings internationally, and served as project architect on prominent public art installations. Prior to co-founding Studio F Minus, Hindson was a designer at Gabriel Mackinnon Lighting Design. Since its founding in 2008, Studio F Minus has been commissioned to produce major public works for cities across Canada, and has exhibited installation works in galleries and museums internationally. Currently the studio is working on a UN peace monument in Peterborough and an electric glass sculpture for the City of Burlington.
Originally designed to promote the province through exhibits and entertainment – Ontario Place evolved many times before shutting its doors. I cannot think of a better setting for works of light than the nearly forgotten snowy setting of Ontario Place after dark. I am looking forward to seeing what the selected artists and designers create in this space that is reinventing itself once again.
