In 2015, Nuit Blanche will be extending its reach to North York with the installation of internationally acclaimed artist JR’s INSIDE OUT. This ‘group action’ production consists of taking candid portraits with community members in a mobile photo booth, printing out the photos in a large format, and helping to install them in public spaces. Participants will join a group of 200,000 people from more than 112 countries & territories who have taken part! With the support of Nuit Blanche and civic leaders in Toronto, North York Arts is excited to invite artists, students and residents from the surrounding regions to participate and volunteer for this event.
The project will take place on Tuesday, September 29 from 10 am to 6 pm in Mel Lastman Square. The full Scotiabank Nuit Blanche program will be Saturday, October 3 from sunset to sunrise.
