Arts adventures continued last night at Nuit Blanche Toronto 2014, as audiences roamed the night to view and engage with various arts and culture exhibits around the city.
A lot of the exhibits I saw (along with pals Lizzie Violet and Zoltan Hawryluk) were part of the Night Circus series. Here’s what we saw last night, followed by a slide show:
All Together Now – Group Exhibition @ Hart House. Video and live performance with choirs, featuring LGBTQ choir Singing Out, among others.
Queen’s Park was rockin’ with a cosplay rave vibe, with a DJ, fire juggling and eating, peeps in animal costumes and clowns. Dancing, music and a fun, energetic atmosphere.
8th Wonder – Michael Oatman and Brian Kane @ Union Station
A very cool interactive light box installation (will see if I can find title/artist).
Un/natural History: Drowning Captiva 2014 – George Bolster
The Melodious Malfeasance Meat-Grinding Machine 2014 – Dana Sherwood
Night Suite – lightsweetcrude
Big Top Grand Stand 2014 – SuttonBeresCuller

Hive (2.0) – Hopkins Duffield @ Wychwood Barns
Dried Beans Models of the Universe from the Department of Household Sciences and Advanced Proverbs – John Shipman @ St. Matthews United Church (which also included a helping of very tasty vegetarian chili)
