Help bring a Kusama Infinity Mirror Room to the AGO
This past summer, Canadians experienced a truly unique and exciting exhibition in Toronto: Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirrors at the AGO.
Kusama fever took over Toronto and renewed a passion for engaging with art. The exhibition broke records at the AGO as everyone wanted to catch a glimpse of the mirrored rooms featuring the artist's most iconic kaleidoscopic environment. Many were not able to get tickets to the sold out event.
The gallery has now launched a campaign to acquire Canada's first Infinity Mirror Room, and the public is invited to be part of this #InfinityAGO Campaign.
The Infinity Mirror Room the AGO hopes to acquire has never before exhibited in Canada. It would be the first Infinity Room acquired by a Canadian public art museum, and would remain as a permanent exhibit. The AGO is asking its supporters to help raise the funds, in order to create this historical milestone.
As funds are raised, the AGO will reveal a photo of the Infinity Mirror Room, and donors will get a sneak peek each time a part of the image is revealed.
While the AGO has already secured 50% of the funding, it is asking the public for help. And by donating, you'll enjoy some added benefits. A donation of $25 (essentially the price of a ticket) or more will give you access to the Infinity Mirror Room before it opens to the general public in 2019. There are other benefits based on the level of your donation such as limited edition Kusama buttons, tote bags, umbrellas, tickets to a Polka Dot Party, and much more. You can also choose to opt out of the ticket and benefits for a full charitable tax receipt.
The crowdfunding goal is 1.3 million CAD. If you'd like to help out, you can DONATE HERE.
