Nuit Blanche is here. Experience the city in a unique light, transformed by artists at Toronto’s free sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art. This year they have a 75-foot sculpture at Yonge-Dundas Square. Nathan Phillips Square will be turned into a shipping container city. There’s even going to be horses running free in Queens Park. To hear all about Nuit Blanche 2017 listen to Totally Toronto.

You can check out this piece at Nathan Phillips Square.

Visit 'Mexican Revolution 1917 Zapatistas Army of National Liberation Uprizing 1994,' a social sculpture as part of the 'Century of Revolutions' exhibition curated by Nato Thompson. Found at #NathanPhillipsSquare, the container revisits two important years in Mexico's history: 1917, when a civic constitution was adopted in Mexico after seven years of civil war; and 1994, when the Army of National Liberation entered the town of San Christobal de Las Casas to continue revolutionary struggle for the rights of the indigenous peoples of Mexico. Experience the city transformed by artists at Toronto's free, sunset-to-sunrise celebration of contemporary art.

Nathan Phillips Square has also been turned into a shipping container city.

This will be going down at Queens Park.

Visit 'Automobile, 2012 -present,' a sound performance featuring cars with super modified stereo systems, part of the 'Taking to the Streets' exhibition curated by Barbara Fischer. A group of cars with souped-up sound systems are parked under a bridge on Wellesley Street and Queen's Park Cresent West, in front of the parliament building. You can hear the bass way before you see them. Joe Namy’s composition connects these systems together in a 6 channel immersive sound piece amplified through the cars.
