The crystal anniversary of AGO Massive brought good vibes to the museum. This important fundraiser celebrated 15 years of supporting the AGO’s mission to bring people together with art to see, experience and understand the world in new ways. And all with a good dose of glitter!

Programmed by the event’s Creative Director Director X, guests were treated to amazing performances and a dazzling array of art installations by emerging local artists. Take a look at some of the artist’s creations, highlighted below.

Keeping party-goers moving all night, Toronto’s own Kardinal Offishall, the Celebrity Marauders and other fabulous local DJs spun energetic beats.
