Nuit Blanche

The 12th edition of this dusk-to-dawn art festival celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday by looking ahead. Five curators approach the theme “Many Possible Futures” with installations that explore identity and nationhood. For her part, Barbara Fischer – the interim director of the University of Toronto Art Centre – encourages artists to leverage roadways as both canvases and sites of activism, while British film curator Karen Alexander examines how a multicultural city accommodates the memories of places its residents have left behind. In other words, expect vibrant graffiti and nostalgic video projections.
