Toronto Buzz: AGOs Massive sells out, Good for Her screens best feminist porn, yogis zen out and and we all go green

Marchesa Luisa Casati’s Massive Party at the AGO
With Marchesa Luisa Casati as the host, it’s no wonder AGO’s Massive completely sold out weeks before the event.Mischief prevailed at last year’s Speak Easy and no doubt Toronto’s biggest annual art party will, once again, be a vibrant, and loud, fusion of society and art as 1600 people honour and call to the spirit of Marchesa Casati. The portrait of Marchesa, by Augusta John, is a favourite within the AGO’s collection and Massive’s Artistic Director, Bruno Billio, will be transforming Walker Court, and surrounding halls and nooks, into a space that Marchesa would approve of. Venetian, Parisian and Tunisian parlours will welcome Bay St bankers and Queen West gallery owners alike into a passage back in time. We can’t wait to dress up and be art.

Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards

The Yoga Show
9600 yoga experts will land at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this week to breathe, bolster, bend and stretch. A $15 pass will get you access all weekend to the 110 exhibitors booths plus unlimited garden yoga classes (We are not exactly sure where the garden is within the convention centre.)

And of all the trade shows that storm through this town, we anticipate this one to have the most smiles. More info.
