Enjoy Nuit Blanche in Our Neighborhood

Nuit Blanche is October 2, 2010. This year marks the 5th anniversary of this night-long art party, and organizers have changed things up a little, keeping the majority of the installations around the subway loop.  There will, however, be lots to explore in our part of town, labelled “Zone C” on the official map. Our neighborhood, Trinity Bellwoods Park, Parkdale and Liberty Village, among others, will feature independant art installations from local artists.

Here is a partial list of some of the displays you will be able to see during Nuit Blanche 2010:

InterAccess Gallery is teaming up with the Canadian Film Centre (CFC) with “Close Encounters,” a variety of interactive projects.

Levack Block hosts Brad Blucher and Kyle Clements, Take a Picture, which will require audience participation as viewers are invited to reveal a mystery behind a blank canvas.

Oz Studios is showcasing a sound installation from David Wickland – Toronto, Canada, Christian Joakim – Toronto, and Steven Beites – Sudbury, Canada, called ParaSOUND.

We have also learned that Christian McLeod Gallery will be open all night for Nuit Blanche with an exhibition of new works.

Plus, at least two restaurants will be fueling the revellers with their specialties: Delux is offering their Cuban sandwiches, and Goed Eten will be serving up fries and poutine.

There are also several installations, including dance and sculpture, planned within Trinity Bellwoods Park, MOCCA will stay open all night, and galleries on Queen West are participating in the fun. Enjoy! See something new, but you can still stay in the neighborhood.
