Nuit Blanche is one of the best cultural events in Toronto. From 6:59 pm until sunrise, the city is transformed by artists in this celebration of contemporary art. Over the past few years, my favourite art projects have included Jon Sasaki's mascots in Promise It Will Always Be This Way at Lamport Stadium in 2008. Sasaki's work, like his recent installation Pine at the Art Gallery of Ontario, continues to intrigue me.
In the meantime, here are two videos I created last year capturing two installations in Parkdale:
The Night Watch by Kristi Malakoff of Nelson, Canada
Fire and Flux by Toronto artist Christine Irving and Site3
Here's my blog post from last year. Visit the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Toronto site to check out the artists and plan your night.
