October 4th from 6:53 pm to sunrise marks the return of the all night contemporary art event in #Toronto. It’s time to see some strange and wonderful exhibits, just mind the crowds as you try to check out the over 110 projects spread throughout the city.
“Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2014 will feature four City-produced exhibitions, three of which are located in new neighbourhoods, Fort York, Chinatown/Spadina Avenue and Roundhouse Park/Bremner Boulevard, providing fresh, unexpected locations for the artists to transform and the audience to explore. This year’s all-female roster of distinguished curators is presenting one of the most diverse lineups of artists in the event’s history, including one exhibition dedicated to performative contemporary art.
Dominique Fontaine, an independent curator from Montreal, is curating the exhibition “Between the earth and the sky, the possibility of everything.” The exhibition features 12 projects in Chinatown and on Queen West. Fontaine’s exhibition creates a framework for artistic experimentation that alters basic assumptions about what people see, feel and understand about the world and themselves. The exhibition invites audiences to re-think the possibilities of public spaces. Featured artists include Yvette Mattern (New York and Berlin) with the Canadian debut of her monumental project Global Rainbow, Pascal Grandmaison (Montreal) with La main du rêve, and Máximo González’s (Mexico City) Walk among Worlds.
Denise Markonish, curator at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass., is curating the exhibition “The Night Circus,” named after and inspired by Erin Morgens.”
