The official opening of Art Toronto was a unique and important benefit gala for the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) which has raised $5 million dollars over the past 15 years. Funds raised at the event help support the AGO’s exhibition and education programs, with a portion of the proceeds going to purchase works of art at the Fair. A highly anticipated part of this must-attend event is the acquisition of artworks by the gallery to “enhance the AGO’s permanent collection”.
There was also an exclusive performance by Choir! Choir! Choir! at the Opening Night Preview. An international singing phenomenon, guests of the Preview were amazed by their unique style of creative collaboration.
Founded in 2000, Art Toronto is Canada’s international contemporary and modern art fair, located at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in the city’s downtown core. Providing unique access to the Canadian art market, the fair is one of the most important annual art events in Canada. Now in its 17th year, Art Toronto presents important artwork from leading Canadian and international galleries combined with PLATFORM, our engaging series of lectures and panel discussions from prominent art world figures, curated projects, an extensive VIP Program, and top-tier cultural offerings throughout the city.
We would like to thank Blair Mlotek from AC Team for the invitation to the media preview.
