Art Toronto 2017 Opening Night Preview
A benefit for the Art Gallery of Ontario
Thursday, October 26, 2017
Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Art Toronto is Canada’s leading international contemporary and modern art fair and one of the most important annual art events in the country. The Opening Night Preview is the not-to-be-missed opening party benefit for the AGO. Last year, we raised $505,000 in support of AGO exhibitions, programming and artwork acquisitions.
The Opening Night Preview offers guests exclusive access to view and purchase works at the fair before it opens to the general public. Alongside leading dealers and artists, guests will toast the opening of the fair with signature cocktails, gourmet hors d'oeuvres and an artist project uniquely created for the evening.Buy Tickets
