In Photos: Nuit Blanche 2017

(By: Emma Sandri)

Between sunset and sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 30, the city of Toronto was transformed into a living, breathing art exhibit.

The annual festival known as Nuit Blanche invites people from around the world to view, celebrate, and participate in the work of contemporary artists. Their work includes, but is not limited to sculptures, music, poetry, photography, film and graffiti.

These installations, while varying, generally focused on activism and the central theme of “Many Possible Futures.” Issues such as gender equality, Indigenous rights and poverty were brought to light by numerous artists in a variety of different mediums.

As such, submissions to the festival were received from international, national and local artists, both obscure and well-known. This included several past and present Ryerson students, who created and hosted such events as DELIGHT, Domesticate Me, and Foreign Bodies.

From Old City Hall to Ryerson campus, and back again, here are some highlights of Nuit Blanche 2017.
