16Aug11
Toronto – The City of Toronto today released the entire artistic program for the sixth edition of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, taking place Saturday, October 1 from 6:59 p.m. until sunrise the next morning.

This year’s Scotiabank Nuit Blanche lineup includes 134 projects created by more than 500 local, national and international artists. For one sleepless night, the streets of the city once again come alive with public art. “Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is one of the most highly anticipated events in Toronto’s cultural calendar,” said Mayor Rob Ford.

Shirley Madill curates “The Future of the Present” exhibition featuring works embracing new technologies to form non-pictorial art that reflect the philosophies of Marshall McLuhan. Highlights include:
• “Ascension” by Isabelle Hayeur offer viewers a glimpse into infinity through site and sound. Ken Rinaldo’s “Paparazzi Bots” gives passers-by their 15 minutes of fame inside the Toronto Eaton Centre.
• “Intra Muros” by Rose Bond tells the story of an artist’s struggle with the creative process through an animated installation.
• Mischa Kuball’s work “public preposition No. 3/swing stage” alters a city skyscraper by echoing the act of cleaning a window.
• Christine Irving’s interactive fire sculpture “Heart Machine”, which premiered at Burning Man in 2010, makes its Canadian debut.
