Toronto Nuit Blanche 2013

Toronto Nuit Blanche is here once again and it’s time to be wowed by the art outdoor installations that glow all night long on October 5 from sunset to sunrise the next day. It’s also a time to be disappointed by the crowded streets and areas where the installations are erected for free public viewing. So, if you are going, don’t go with a huge contingent of friends to roam around because it would be hard to find each other once one is lost among the jubilant, the rowdy and the drunk crowd. And oh, the subway runs all night, too!

In one night, Toronto turns into an outdoor museum (few installations are indoors) of contemporary arts like no other. You will be inspired. A total of 110 contemporary art works will be seen in different places throughout the city.  Two more days to go and some of these art installations are already sprouting anywhere. Yesterday afternoon, I got to see two in their early stages of installation.

This year, the most impressive in the line up of all the installations is the massive work of China’s most influential contemporary artist, Ai Weiwei. With 3,144 bicycles interconnected in different directions, FOREVER BICYCLES would be something both the art aficionados and artsy-fartsy visitors would love to ogle at. At night, the said installation would shimmer—giving it more life, meaning and substance.
