To celebrate AGO Massive’s 15th year, we are inspired by the anniversary’s token gift, crystal. Often represented as a shimmering stone, beaming with endless light and colour, the true definition of crystal extends far past this one example. The crystal in all its forms will be brought to life through art, food, music and performance. Guests will be encouraged to wear their best sparkling attire, while clinking their glasses in celebration of 15 years of AGO Massive.
