Maps & Signs

Each site has been assigned a number that will appear on the map and will also appear on the identifying sign when you arrive at the site location.

Contemporary art refers to the work being created by artists today in the present era. This art reflects and addresses the challenging themes and issues of our times. Utilizing current practices, styles and media, artists push the boundaries with provocative ideas and strive to evoke lively debate within our urban centres. Through Scotiabank Nuit Blanche you can participate in these discussions and become a part of the contemporary understanding of visual art, culture and the social consciousness of our communities.

Trained guides, called docents, will be on site at most of the exhibition sites to offer information and facilitate your understanding and enjoyment of the installations. The docents meet directly with the artists and curators to develop an in-depth comprehension of the work, the creative process and how to interpret the work so that they are able to share this information with you.
