    What’s worth staying awake for at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche

    Take your afternoon nap and grab your comfy shoes! It’s that time of year when the streets, galleries, parks and other spaces will play host to Toronto’s annual all-night art obsession. Beginning at sundown on Saturday, October 5 until sunrise Sunday, October 6, our city will host Nuit Blanche free and mostly-family friendly exhibits. You can map out what you want to see (all installations are listed on the official

    21st CENTURY CRAFT: One Path Collective. Location: Spadina Museum. Explore the polarization of craft versus the so-called ‘fine arts’. The artists will present a performance and installation honouring the talents of largely unsung craftspeople—such as the Gee’s Bend quilters, among others. Craft has been in a constant state of becoming over the centuries. From its roots in necessity, it has morphed through industrial and electronic revolutions, affected by fads and changing perspectives. Each artist in this project will focus on craft techniques often taught in the home. They will evoke the cultural and aesthetic kinship among makers. And all will use found or repurposed materials. Crafting in the home is frequently a point of genesis for these artists and their processes. “21st-Century Craft” will permit visitors to see some of the skills behind couture, marquees, props and scenery. These genres are often made in service to live performance art, rather than recognized as arts in their own right.

    5 Toronto Nuit Blanch exhibits with Lasting Impact

    These community-minded installations will make you think and feel—and leave with a sense of hope

    BY ALICIA COX THOMSON

    Ahighlight of the fall season since 2006, Nuit Blanche transforms Toronto into a living art gallery from sunset to sunrise. The all-night celebration returns September 29, 2018, to champion artistic expression and creativity at more than 80 exhibitions, installations and performances throughout the city. This year’s curatorial theme is You Are Here, which asks pointed questions about the GTA, its citizens and their myriad stories, connections, journeys and cultures.

    This year there are several stories told by and about women and people of colour around themes of social justice and community. You can take part in thought-provoking experiences inspired by stories of immigrants and refugees, and bear witness to faces and voices that traditionally have had fewer opportunities in the art world to be seen or heard. The following five exhibits contain many of these—from visual and interactive art to experiential installations you’ll never forget.

     

    5 W-O-M-A-N

    Location: Spadina Museum

    One Path is a group of 14 women and artists whose exhibition is a multi-disciplinary, interactive, feminist celebration for, by and about women. The event includes elements of costume design, horticultural art, mosaics, painting, photography, sculpture, stained glass, videography and textiles, as well as digital and performance art. You can expect to witness female rites of passage from birth to death. W-O-M-A-N is a true celebration of the joy, pain, fear and love womanhood embodies. (Photography by City of Toronto)

    Thank you from the City of Toronto Nuit Blanche Team!

    Dear Barbara and the One Path collective artists,

     

    On behalf of City of Toronto City Cultural Events, I am writing to express my sincerest appreciation for your participation in the 14th edition of Nuit Blanche Toronto. With your help the city was once again transformed through contemporary art from sunset to sunrise.

     

    The Independent Projects Program is an integral part of the event as a whole, creating opportunities for community engagement and neighbourhood exploration through self-produced artistic programming. We were so pleased to include 21st Century Craft as part of the 48 independent projects of this year's Nuit Blanche Toronto. Your work is a vital part of what makes the program such a success, and we hope to continue building these meaningful relationships with cultural producers such as yourself as we move into the future with City-produced arts events such as Nuit Blanche Toronto.

     

    Feedback from our event partners is crucial in evaluating our successes, and in discovering opportunities to learn, improve, and grow. We would greatly appreciate you taking 1 or 2 minutes to complete this short survey on your experience participating in Nuit Blanche Toronto as an Independent Project.

     

    In the coming months, we will be preparing to announce the 2020-2021 Nuit Blanche program, with a new theme, artistic director, the call for applications and even more opportunities to connect with audiences in the GTA and beyond. We hope you will continue to stay involved with City of Toronto arts and culture events, whether it is as a producer, partner or visitor.

     

    With our deepest thanks,

    Congratulations!

     

    Dear Barbara,

     

    I'm writing to congratulate you and your team on an incredibly successful Nuit Blanche installation! I was unfortunately not able to visit, but my colleague Cynthia was blown away by what she called "a secret garden of thoughtful, beautiful installations about important women's issues."

     

    I hope your experience was a positive one. Of course do not hesitate to reach out with any feedback, as we want to continue improving how we support independent artists and organizations through the event.

     

    Wishing you a restful week! Congratulations and best of luck on your future endeavours. I hope our paths will cross again!

     

    Best,

    Shannon

Nine artists contributed to OnePath Toronto, a group exhibition that explored ideas of identity and nationhood through large-scale and interactive installations on the grounds of Spadina Museum. In Ephemerality (above), a multi-media installation founded on the Greek concept of all things being transitory, Barbara Cook asks if our efforts to improve the environmental condition of Canada and the earth ultimately be transitory.ate to reach out with any feedback, as we want to continue improving how we support independent artists and organizations through the event.

    Made of natural cotton by artist Gloria Stein, River: The Shroud of Buczacz, was a 16 foot by 24 foot topographically accurate scale model of the site in Poland where 1500 Jews were murdered during the course of one night in early spring 1943. Stein’s father, then but a small child, managed to survive the massacre, but the poisoned river would feature in the nightmares of the Holocaust that would haunt him for the rest of his life. The shroud both concealed and revealed as it reminded the viewer of the story’s saddest relic, that “many parts of our precious earth are still being poisoned with the blood of innocent victims”.
