Residents Warned of Scam Surrounding Hugely Popular Attraction
While all scams can lead to hardship, few will lead to more abject disappointment than the one that Ontarians (and others) are being advised to be hyper aware of.
The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), which is currently hosting the incredibly popular Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors exhibit, has warned ticket seekers to be aware of potential scams.
The AGO recently took to Twitter to remind potential attendees that the gallery is the only authorized seller of Infinity Mirrors tickets.
“Visitors may be asked to show ID and risk being disappointed by ticket scams and being denied admittance to the exhibition, due to unauthorized publication or sale of a ticket,” the AGO said.

It’s no surprise that fake tickets to the incredibly popular (and intensely buzzed about) exhibit could become a sad reality. Toronto is the only Canadian stop for the superbly Instagrammable exhibit (which kicked off on March 3 and will run until May 27) and people have waited for hours upon hours in online queues for tickets (this author included).
So if a deal on Infinity Mirrors tickets looks too good to be true, it probably is.
