The weekend is here and Toronto's AGO is making the most of it with a 12-hour art party on Saturday. You can explore different rooms and enjoy performances and installations throughout the day. The best part is, AGO All Hours is free if you're under 25, or have an AGO Annual Pass or membership.
If you're ready to see a marathon of art, this is the perfect weekend party for you. This will be an all-day, all-ages event with an itinerary for the morning, afternoon and evening, so you can stop by to enjoy the activities throughout the day.
In partnership with OCAD, this event will be bringing in lots of local talent who are excited to share their work at this 12-hour bash. There will five all-day exhibits as well as time-slotted talks and performances throughout the day. Each room invites you into a new world to appreciate, so take yourself away on a journey. You can stand in a room that has been transformed into an imaginary campsite where you can daydream by the fire. Next, visit a pop-up tea shop right in the gallery where you can sip on traditional Chinese brews and play a game of Mahjong.

A video installation will also be running all day which will relax your mind with tidal effects and sounds to soothe the soul.
The pop-up literary performances will be running at 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. and will include spoken word as well as a performance class by Lillian Allen.
The whole event will be an interactive, immersive experience that will dazzle your senses and inspire your mind.
