#AGOinspo: Machine Age Massive

May 8th, 2017

The AGO was transformed for the 13th annual Massive Party on April 27, and this time it entered the Machine Age. Robots were front and centre with the massive T1 Bot that welcomed revellers with high-fives as they entered the Gallery. Guests were then treated to futuristic installations from our featured artists, including mesmerizing video installations in Walker Court from Trudy Elmore, a people-powered light-up disco floor from Jon Sasaki in the Weston Family Learning Centre, not to mention the incredible mix of ballet and sculptural works created by Harley Valentine in Baillie Court. Delicious themed cocktails and canapés were passed around as guests admired the art and each other’s creative ensembles. Guests were dressed in LED and glow-in-the-dark accessories, as well as machine-themed metallic and structural shapes – in terms of fashion, we think we saw the future!

Thanks to everyone who came out and danced the night away in support of the AGO. We can’t wait to do it all again next year, but in the meantime, for more thought-provoking art and dance floor jams, don’t forget to come back for our monthly art partyFirst Thursdays!
