Light Up the Dark 2022

Watch the stunning exterior of the Aga Khan Museum come to life with mesmerizing light projections created by students at OCAD University.

Light Up the Dark returns to the Museum with animations that celebrate different masterpieces in the Museum’s Collections — from a 400-year-old, marble and sandstone fountain to lushly detailed manuscript paintings from 16th-century Iran.

Watch the animations dance across the Museum's west façade as a captivating score composed by students at Humber College reveals the surprising interconnections between the cultures represented in the Museum's Collections and artistic traditions from around the world.

Warm up with a comforting hot drink while you enjoy Pop-up Performances around the Museum and sample a selection of evening bites inspired by the flavours of South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa by Diwan, the Museum’s renowned restaurant.

The Museum’s galleries will be open until 9 pm for the festivities. Seize this opportunity to explore the Museum's newest exhibition, Afghanistan My Love and the current Museum Collections rotation, Birds.
