Art Toronto Opening Night

Thursday, October 24, 2019, 6:30-10pm

Art Toronto is Canada’s leading international contemporary and modern art fair and one of the most important annual art events in the country. Art Toronto Opening Night is the not-to-be-missed kick-off benefit for the AGO. Last year, we welcomed more than 2300 guests and raised over $525,000 in support of AGO exhibitions, programming, and artwork acquisitions. This year Art Toronto turns 20 and the AGO is thrilled to once again be a lead partner for what is sure to be an exciting celebration.

Art Toronto Opening Night offers guests exclusive access to view and purchase works at the fair before it opens to the public. Alongside leading dealers and artists, guests toast the launch of the fair with delectable drinks, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and an artist project commissioned specifically for the evening.

Art Toronto Opening Night is an important fundraiser that supports our mission to bring people together with art to see, experience and understand the world in new ways. The funds raised strengthen our collections and exhibitions, grow audiences through engaging public programs, and increase access to welcome more curious minds at the AGO.

Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building 255 Front Street West
