Art Toronto Opening Night 2018

A Benefit for the AGO

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 $500,000 in support of AGO exhibitions, programming and artwork acquisitions.

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 raises important funds that strengthen our collections and exhibitions, grow audiences through engaging public programs, and increase access to welcome more curious minds at the AGO.
