INVISIBLE GIFT
Donation to the new AGO, June 23, 2005
by Istvan Kantor

I'm happy to inform the Art Gallery of Ontario
that I will mix my blood into the concrete
used in the construction of the new building.
This simple sculptural gift will become an integrated part
of the walls of the new AGO as an invisible monument.

It will signify that every museum worldwide
was built with the blood of artists.
