Experience Toronto transformed by more than 100 contemporary public art projects. All night long from sunset to sunrise!
This year’s multicultural highlights include:
- “A Wall is a Screen”: a combination of guided city tour, film night and art project. The German artist group guides the audience through downtown Toronto and stops at selected locations to project short films on walls and surfaces – live with projector, generator and speakers in tow. They will run two 2-hour film walks, one at 8pm and one at 11pm, and will also be screening an “A Wall Is A Screen” program in the windows at King & Emily Streets all night.
- The Canadian Music Centre’s project “Global Motives” examines traditions are being integrated into Canadian new music. Twelve musicians will be performing one-hour sets through the night.
- “Texting Syria” is an interactive installation based on the experiences refugee families near the Syrian border. Located at Queen and Strachan.
- “The Empress Dowager (she enters and fondly remembers her youth)”: Ensemble Jeng Yi attempts to perform non-stop all night. Korean music, drumming, and dance, including both traditional pieces and original compositions. Church of the Redeemer (162 BLoor St W)
