AGO All Hours
Game on! AGO All Hours returns on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, inviting visitors and local artists of all ages to explore the creative, cultural and historical phenomenon of gaming from the 1980s to the present.
From 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., the museum comes alive with new art projects and playful moments designed to bring artists, performers, curators, artworks and visitors together to create, think, explore and play.
With activations like a Pac-Man inspired gaming experience created by Toronto artist David Fono, a large scale vintage arcade organized by illustrator Eric Kostiak-Williams, and drop-in art making, pop-up talks, guided tours, new art installations and an evening performance by Toronto’s own Allie X, AGO All Hours promises to uplift and inspire.
Admission to AGO All Hours is FREE for AGO Members, Annual Pass holders and all visitors 25 and under, with in-and-out privileges throughout the duration of the event.
Buy your Annual Pass now, and be ready to walk right in. Single tickets are $25.
More information can be found at AGO.ca/allhours or by following #AGOAllHours.
In addition to special AGO All Hours programming, visitors that day can explore the larger than life paintings of Peter Paul Rubens, and see for themselves the drama and passion of the Baroque age. Marking the triumphant return of the AGO’s own Rubens masterpiece Massacre of the Innocents after being displayed at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, and featuring many works never before seen in North America, Early Rubens is free for visitors to AGO All Hours, but timed-entry tickets are required.
The exhibition will be open until 9 p.m.; with the last entry at 8 p.m. AGO Annual Pass holders and the public can reserve a time slot at ago.ca beginning on Sept. 27, 2019.
