Group Shot at AGO Massive


On April 18th, my friends and I were lucky to have highly-coveted golden tickets for this sold-out party of the year that was worth its weight in GOLD! The AGO illuminated a warm glow on the corner of Dundas and St. George with the Massive Party GOLD. 1,800 party-goers sprawled throughout multiple floors of the AGO, enjoying installations and performances by artists who have been inspired by all things Gold including Thrush Holmes, Tibi Tibi Neuspiel & Geoffrey Pugen, Mango Peeler, Mahmood Popal and Jade Rude. The AGO’s artistic director, Justin Broadbent, created exclusive pieces for the evening’s gold showcase including the 3D waterfalls in the Vine below. DJ Mensa, Felix & Gani (milk.), Your Boy Brian and a live performance by Maylee Todd got the party started. Dazzling guests were dressed head-to-toe in gold as camera flashes lit up their outfits.

Things I liked about the AGO’s 2013 Massive gala:

  • open bar
  • tons of people
  • live art/performers
  • the art installations and decor
  • yummy hors d’oeuvres
  • people dressed up, decked out in gold
  • the photo booth

Funds raised through the Massive Party will help the Art Gallery of Ontario continue to deliver their education and exhibition programs.
