Last Saturday, Toronto held its fifth annual Nuit Blanche, a free dusk to dawn event celebrating contemporary art throughout the city.
Some of the events included 'Grindbox!' - a continuous loop of vintage horror and exploitation trailers at the Bell Lightbox, 'Monument to Smile' - a giant projection of photos showcasing people smiling against the Holt Renfrew building, 'Imponderabilia' - a recreation of Marina Abramovic's audacious 1977 exhibit at the University of Toronto, and 'Later that Night at the Drive-In' - a collage of sound and images projected against screens scattered around Nathan Phillips Square.
We took in many shows beginning at 10pm and ending around 6:30am.
Needless to say, Nuit Blanche 2010 was a huge success. The bags under my eyes can attest to that.
