Nuit Blanche: Up all night in Toronto

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche will fill down town Toronto this Saturday night.  From sunset to sunrise many of the streets will be closed to traffic allowing hundreds of thousands of people to stroll from site to site, taking in the art, the installations and the lectures.  This 8th edition of the event features 112 exhibits and the work of 500 artists from around the world.

One of the highlights this year is a special installation of Ai Weiwei’s sculpture known as ‘Forever Bicycles’ in Nathan Phillps Square. There will be a screening of the video, “Never Sorry”, on the Chinese artist and dissident who can’t leave his native country but he will send a video message.

Nuit Blanche is celebrated on other occasions in Montreal, Ottawa and Winnipeg and 120 cities around the world.
