Leo Villareal

Light Installation

As the AGO completes its transformation project, artist Leo Villareal will create a special Nuit Blanche metamorphosis of the Gallery's south facade. Responding to the architecture of Frank Gehry, Villareal will create light installation at the top of the AGO's new south tower, which can be viewed from Grange Park and John Street. A radial array of powerful LED fixtures on the AGO's south facade overlooking Grange Park will produce hypnotic effects with flashing light. Sequenced through custom software, the piece will utilize the rules of physics to evoke spectacular cosmological events.

Suitable for all ages
