On Thursday, April 21st, 2016, co-chairs David Delaney & Anais Granofsky welcomed over 2,000 party-goers to the AGO for the 12th year of the Massive Party. This year Artistic Directors the Broadbent Sisters presented the Midnight Massive Party.
Guests arrived masked at 9 pm and entered the decorated 1st and 3rd floors. The AGO was transformed by illusory sights and sounds by Toronto’s top emerging artists and musicians.
There were mesmerizing performances, interactive installations and giant projections displayed all over the AGO.
Once the clock struck midnight, with the moon full, a magical night of levitation, mirage, cosmic interruptions, and spectacular art changed and transformed the AGO.
Guests were treated to: cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, entertainment and contemporary art installations. Funds raised through the Massive Party help the AGO continue to deliver ambitious education and exhibition programs.
The Committee included:
Andrea Anders, Shelby Austin, Ali Azzopardi, Kathryn Bird, Blaire Borins, Joy Broadbent, Rose Broadbent, Kathryn Buczko, Chris Campbell, Alicia DeBoer, David Delaney, Neil Follett, Anais Granofsky, Brendon Holder, Matt Irwin, Vanessa Kalisz, Kelly Kirkpatrick, Katie Knopp, Merete Kristiansen, Emma MacDonald, Adrienne Maniezzo, Deanne Moser, Jennifer Nugent, Kevin Seto, Paul Smith, Boris Tsimerinov, Tara Wakter
We would like to thank Andrea-Jo Wilson-Senior Communications Officer AGO – Art Gallery of Ontario for the invitation to The Massive Party.
