Also, tickets are on sale now for the exhibition’s opening night Evolution Party which will take place on October 30, 2013. Party ticket prices start at $150 for members and $160 for non-members.
The Evolution Party is sponsored by Richardson GMP, Canada’s largest independent wealth management firm. They also sponsored last year’s incredible Designing 007 Bond Party which took over the TIFF Bell Lightbox that evening. It was so good we named it one of the best Toronto events of 2012 so you can be sure to look forward to a great experience at this year’s Evolution Party.

ABOUT DAVID CRONENBERG
David Paul Cronenberg, OC, FRSC (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, screenwriter and actor. He is one of the principal originators of what is commonly known as the body horror or venereal horror genre. This style of filmmaking explores people’s fears of bodily transformation and infection. In his films, the psychological is typically intertwined with the physical. In the first half of his career, he explored these themes mostly through horror and science fiction, although his work has since expanded beyond these genres. He has been called “the most audacious and challenging narrative director in the English-speaking world.”
