Nuit Blanche: Resistance, Revolution & Drag!
by RAYMOND HELKIO
20 September 2017.

Nuit Blanche Toronto is our free, annual, city-wide, all-night celebration of contemporary art produced by the City of Toronto in collaboration with Toronto's arts community. From sunset to sunrise, the familiar is discarded and Toronto is transformed into an artistic playground for a series of exhilarating contemporary art experiences in unexpected public spaces.

This year's Nuit Rose promises exhibitions that reflect on ideas not limited to: protest and social change, revolution and resistance, difference and acceptance, cultural endurance and visibility through the lens of Indigenous creators. Given the political turmoil in Toronto over the past year, it'll be interesting to see what the artists are able to do with the theme.

Noteworthy this year are: "Vertigo Sea" at the Design Exchange, "Hand-held" at Church of the Holy Trinity and "Ocean" in the City Hall Rotunda. But before things get started there's a pre-party collaboration with Pride Toronto called DRAG + PARTY, a queer art hub with drag, art, dance and music with performances by Sasha Velour, Kim Chi and Naomi Smalls. Plus DJs ticky ty and John Caffery will be spinning amazing sets all night long!
