Nuit Blanche Toronto Unveils Full Program of More Than 75 Art Projects
- August 23, 2018
On September 29 at 7pm the 13th annualwill fill the city's streets with more than 75 contemporary art projects created by over 300 local, national and international artists.
Three city of-produced curated exhibitions, one in Scarborough, one downtown and a third bridging the two neighbourhoods will be presented under the event-wide theme of ‘You Are Here’.
This year’s completely free event focuses on Toronto as a city of change and a city in progress, where artists and curators invite the public to see Toronto through new eyes. The evolving and storied landscape continues to challenge our thinking of what Toronto is, provoking the following questions: What does difference mean when we are all different? Can our differences bind us together even as they set us apart? How do we rethink concepts of minorities and majorities? As relationships of power and privilege shift, how do we redefine the status quo and reconsider what it means to be together?
- "STYLL" curated by Alyssa Fearon (Canada), located at Scarborough Civic Centre and Scarborough Town Centre;
- "Dream Time: We All Have Stories" curated by Karen Alexander (United Kingdom) located at Nathan Phillips Square/Toronto City Hall, Church of the Holy Trinity and Toronto Coach Terminal;
- "The Things They Carried" curated by Tairone Bastien (Canada), located at Yonge Dundas Square, Bay Street between Queen Street West and Wellington Street West, James Street, Line 3 Scarborough stations, and Scarborough Civic Centre.
