Nuit Blanche at Fort York

Saturday, October 5, 7 pm to 7 am 

For one sleepless night, experience Toronto transformed by hundreds of artists and more than 80 art projects. This year's event-wide theme is Continuum. Fort York National Historic Site will be surrounded by new art wherein the past and the present collide. Around the fort is the series Creation : Destruction, a dispersed exhibition curated by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta. They say all things reside on the borders of creation and destruction: inspired by the immediate area, this exhibition will challenge our understanding of these seemingly contradictory concepts. Nine new works of Creation : Destruction are included among this neighbourhood’s 14 Nuit Blanche installations. Project sites include The Bentway and Fort York, the old abattoir on Tecumseth and the Wellington Street salt-storage dome; download a map here.
