September First Thursday: Back to Basics

  • AGO 317 Dundas Street West Toronto, ON, M5T 1G4 Canada (map)

The big art party is back! 

"For the launch of our new season we go back to our founding principles: bringing together the next generation of local and contemporary artists across disciplines, who are establishing the new image for Toronto with art, sound and ideas. 

This September's First Thursday showcase includes genre-hopping musical scenery from Anishinaabe electronic artist Ziibiwan, a live set by Nigerian born producer and songwriter LA Timpa and, to end the night, a DJ set by TR/ST, an artist known for a sound that converges pop, dance and goth dynamics. In Galleria Italia, you can also hear Classic Roots, one of Canada’s best kept secrets, while in the galleries there's artist interventions by Jessica Karuhanga, talks from such cultural visionaries like Tao-Ming Lau, founder of Blue Crane Agency and The Rude Collective, and at the door, a one-of-a-kind artist-designed program by one and only Chaddy-Ann Newton.

As always, you can expect delicious food and drinks in the AGO’s Night Market along with a special selection of works from Out of the Vaults.
