Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

2012 Event

Discover more than 150 contemporary art projects within three zones. Some works encourage an intimate encounter with art, while others will wow you with large-scale spectacle.

As a centrepiece to the event, the City of Toronto has produced a special exhibition of 14 projects in and below Toronto City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square. Curated by Janine Marchessault and Michael Prokopow, Museum for the End of the World will engage the audience with questions of catastrophe, collecting and catharsis.

Exhibition Projects produced by the City of Toronto

Under the direction of five curators, 58 temporary public art projects by local, national and international artists have been commissioned. Three of the curated Exhibitions include Open Call Projects which encourage involvement by a wide range of Toronto artists – established and emerging.

Independent Projects produced by the arts community

Toronto artists, cultural and educational institutions, museums, galleries and neighbourhoods participate in Scotiabank Nuit Blanche each year by producing one-of-a-kind projects that transform the city.
