SMASH is the Gardiner’s annual art party, conceived by the Young Patrons Circle and presented by RBC Wealth Management. The name SMASH highlights the tension between the Museum as a space of conservation, but also contemporary art and live creativity.

will you be among the 400

An explosion of Canadian creativity awaits—a rally of contemporary painters, sculptors, digital innovators, musicians, and botanical artists from Toronto and Montreal will transform the Gardiner into sensory overload.

SMASH: We Are More tempts us out of our individual bubbles for a night of bold contemporary art, encounters with natural beauty, and mind-bending installations. Reflecting on the positive power of an interconnected world, SMASH: We Are More invites us to be present, revel, and explore something new. Artists, technologists, designers, musicians, DJs, and botanists have created layers of intrigue among the Museum’s permanent collection, exhibition space, and penthouse terraces.
