The May long weekend is just a few days away, kicking off the season for beach days on the Island, BBQs and patios, summer festivals and leisurely afternoons in the city. This long weekend, the AGO is the place to be, with more chances to experience “the hottest ticket in town,” Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors.

This Thursday, the AGO launches the first of six nights that the exhibition, celebrating the work of one of the greatest living contemporary artists, stays open until midnight. Infinity Mirrors will be open until midnight the last two weekends of its run on May 17, 18 & 19, and May 24, 25 & 26 – with 4,000 late night rush tickets added. Sadly, after a whirlwind three months, Infinity Mirrors must close on Sunday, May 27.

The daily rush ticket line is now the only way to buy tickets. Rush same-day timed tickets go on sale Tuesday to Sunday at 10 am at the AGO box office in person only. Pending availability, visitors can purchase up to two tickets per transaction and AGO Members can receive up to two tickets for free.

Want to know your odds of getting a rush ticket? Follow @agotoronto and the hashtag #AGOrush for updates. Each afternoon, we’ll announce on Twitter the number of rush tickets expected for the next morning, and we’ll provide an update when rush tickets are sold out for the day.

On the holiday Monday – Victoria Day – the AGO will be open from 10:30 am to 4 pm. In fact, in 2018, the AGO will be open almost every holiday in 2018 (we’re only closed on Christmas Day) so consider us your go-to spot for long weekend fun!
