into the foundation and walls of
the transforming Art Gallery of Ontario
and the AGO's current response to his plans
will be announced at Kantor's press conference

Kantor will officially announce the making of
INVISIBLE GIFT / INVISIBLE MONUMENT,

the new Art Gallery of Ontario.
The presentation will include video and
