Nuit Blanche is back at Humber College's Lakeshore Campus!
This September, City of Toronto will host the 17th edition of Nuit Blanche, Toronto’s popular all-night art celebration. Nuit Blanche, created by the City in collaboration with Toronto’s arts community, will return this fall from 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 23 to 7 a.m. on Sunday, September 24. For one dazzling night, neighbourhoods across Toronto will experience remarkable and inspiring pop-up art installations, including major exhibition areas planned for Etobicoke, downtown and Scarborough.
The 2023 curatorial theme, Breaking Ground, speaks to ideas centred around the natural world and being on the vanguard of change and innovation. Defined as the preparation for building or planting, Breaking Ground invites artists to explore a diversity of themes, including the implications of climate change, construction and development of the city’s urban landscape, the impacts on communities and collective responsibilities around land and stewardship.
This year, Nuit Blanche seeks to uncover and highlight artists whose ground-breaking practices challenge the status quo through media, form or content, to transform public spaces and inspire the public to experience Toronto in new and meaningful ways.
