On Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, co-chairs George Barkas, Rob Drynan and Anais Granofsky will welcome an expected 1,900 party-goers to the Art Gallery of Ontario for the 11th year of Massive Party. Concurrent to the AGO exhibition Jean-Michel Basquiat: Now's the Time, this year Artistic Director TALWST will present Massive Party Hotbed.

Like NYC’s avant-garde scene of the 1980s, Hotbed, is the place you want to be, the place you need to be; Hotbed is Toronto in 2015. Featuring artists and musicians that embody the underground, Hotbed speaks through voices, which are already making ripples through the groundswell of Toronto, and are ready to spill into the ocean to penetrate culture internationally. Hotbed breeds an anomaly of what you are used to seeing, hearing, and feeling, and this year’s selection of artists are best equipped to usher you through the riveting experience

Inspired by Hotbed artists including Virgil Baruchel, Broadbent Sisters, Erika DeFreitas, Maya Fuhr, Brad Tinmouth, Chloe Wise and Artistic Director TALWST will create projects exclusively for the event.

Limited tickets are available, so don’t miss this opportunity to attend the AGO’s sensational art party. Tickets include open bar, hors d’oeuvres, entertainment and contemporary art installations. Funds raised through Massive Party will help the AGO continue to deliver ambitious education and exhibition programs. The AGO will issue a charitable tax receipt for the maximum allowable portion of your ticket purchase

For the past five years Massive Party tickets have sold out in advance so purchase yours now.
