Head to Nuit Blanche 2018 this Saturday!
Experience Toronto transformed by artists this Saturday, September 28th as Nuit Blanche takes over downtown Toronto and Scarborough! If you don’t know already, Nuit Blanche Toronto is a free, annual, city-wide celebration of contemporary art, produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with Toronto’s arts community. Since 2006, this award-winning event has featured nearly 1,400 art installations by approximately 4,900 artists, generating over $311 million in economic impact for Toronto. So, this Saturday, go check out some art pieces downtown from sunset to sunrise! Please see below for this year’s must-see exhibits:
Photon Gallery 4.0: Located near Bloor and Ossington you will find this exhibit as it features a wearable version of the video game, Frogger, which is an air-hockey table that shoots fire, a waterfall that lets you “freeze” droplets in mid air, and more!
Cavalier Noir: Located in Scarborough, this exhibit will consist of 80,000+ lego pieces which will take the form of a black child warrior mounted over seven feet tall, riding a unicorn.
International Dumpling Festival: Located next to the Eaton Centre at James and Queen, you will find Ken Lum’s International Dumpling Festival featuring dumplings from around the world!
On Flashing Lights: Located along Bay Street, DJs from Toronto’s queer, immigrant and racialized communities are set to perform against the lights of police vehicles.
