It’s one of the most unique art shows you’ll ever encounter and it takes place in downtown Toronto on Saturday, October 3, 2015 from sunset to sunrise. A free, all-night outdoor art exhibition, the 10th annual Scotiabank Nuit Blanche (Black & White) features the works of hundreds of artists. You’ll be treated to four curated exhibits that are overseen by the City of Toronto. One of them is City Hall/Bay Street. The brainchild of internationally renowned artist JR, it’s the first time an exhibit has ever been set up in and around City Hall and along Bay Street. JR’s specialty is putting up huge full-frame portraits of people making faces on the streets of cities all over the world, grabbing the attention of people who would not normally venture into a museum. Another exhibit is The Work of Wind, which features projects that tackle the Beaufort wind forces that are part of the Waterfront between Parliament and York Streets. It’s curated by Christine Shaw of the Blackwood Gallery.
Scotiabank Nuit Blanche also boasts over 60 contemporary projects that are conceived and executed by the local Toronto art community along with museums, galleries, and cultural institutions. They will appear at locations throughout the downtown area. You can get a better understanding of this truly unique annual event by attending a series of talks and films that are scheduled to take place from September 27 through October 28. These Nuit Talks feature everyone from curators and organizers to the artists themselves. Delve deeper into Scotiabank Nuit Blanche by checking out http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca/ .
