Photos: Luminato 2019 Opening Night Party

On Friday, June 7, Luminato Festival celebrated it’s 13th annual edition at an exclusive, invite-only opening night event at Harbourfront Centre.

Attendees were able to preview two installations before they opened to the public, The Drawing Room and House of Mirrors.

House of Mirrors is a reality-bending, sensory-altering, mind-dizzying experience that has enchanted audiences across the Southern Hemisphere. Sitting at over 12.5ft and weighing in at over 55 tonnes, this reflective wonder makes its North American debut, taking Toronto by storm, simultaneously mesmerizing, disorienting and delighting Luminato audiences.

Optical illusions meet vanity in this house-sized kaleidoscope where reflections are fragmented: shadow, ghost, stranger, or is it just you, Nothing is what it seems as you stumble around thousands of bewildering reflections.
