8 PM – 1 AM

Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas St W

Canada’s art party is back and this time we’re taking it to the streets in celebration of all things hype.

Inspired by the AGO’s upcoming fall exhibitions featuring pop culture icons of past and present, this year’s Art Bash! Press Play will encourage guests to lose themselves in the culture of exaggeration, irreverence and pop art that artists like KAWS and Keith Haring are known for all around the world. Blurring the boundaries between art, mass media, fashion, music and street culture, Art Bash! invites you to experience what all the buzz is about. Your ticket for AGO Art Bash! Press Play includes cocktails, late night eats, one of a kind art installations, entertainment and more.

Art Bash! is the AGO’s signature fundraising event—and the city’s premier celebration of art and culture. This can’t-miss annual gathering brings our community together to raise funds in support of the AGO’s bold vision: to lead global conversations from Toronto through extraordinary collections, exhibitions and programs, and by reflecting the people who live here.
