Illusions were front and centre on April 19th at the AGO’s 14th annual AGO Massive.

While indulging in delicious themed cocktails and canapés, guests were treated to mind-bending installations from artists at Massive Illusion, including collage art from Maxwell Burnstein, an interactive bike-powered light show from Studio F Minus and the beautiful (and eloquent) installation from duo Trevor Wheatley and Cosmo Dean hanging from the ceiling of Walker Court.

Check out highlights below:
