    5 Toronto Nuit Blanch exhibits with Lasting Impact

    These community-minded installations will make you think and feel—and leave with a sense of hope

    BY ALICIA COX THOMSON

    Ahighlight of the fall season since 2006, Nuit Blanche transforms Toronto into a living art gallery from sunset to sunrise. The all-night celebration returns September 29, 2018, to champion artistic expression and creativity at more than 80 exhibitions, installations and performances throughout the city. This year’s curatorial theme is You Are Here, which asks pointed questions about the GTA, its citizens and their myriad stories, connections, journeys and cultures.

    This year there are several stories told by and about women and people of colour around themes of social justice and community. You can take part in thought-provoking experiences inspired by stories of immigrants and refugees, and bear witness to faces and voices that traditionally have had fewer opportunities in the art world to be seen or heard. The following five exhibits contain many of these—from visual and interactive art to experiential installations you’ll never forget.

     

    5 W-O-M-A-N

    Location: Spadina Museum

    One Path is a group of 14 women and artists whose exhibition is a multi-disciplinary, interactive, feminist celebration for, by and about women. The event includes elements of costume design, horticultural art, mosaics, painting, photography, sculpture, stained glass, videography and textiles, as well as digital and performance art. You can expect to witness female rites of passage from birth to death. W-O-M-A-N is a true celebration of the joy, pain, fear and love womanhood embodies. (Photography by City of Toronto)

    ON THE COVER: Eyes on Nuit Blanche 2018

    Tracy Gorman’s “In her eyes” studies the eyes of the women in her life. Gorman specializes in textile-based pieces, and put photos of eyes on a dress using synthetic photographic transfer paper. The installation was part of W-O-M-A-N, an all-woman exhibition about women in society at Spadina House for Nuit Blanche Toronto on September 29. HÜSNA SARI/GLEANER NEWS

    Congratulations!

     

    Dear Barbara,

     

    I'm writing to congratulate you and your team on an incredibly successful Nuit Blanche installation! I was unfortunately not able to visit, but my colleague Cynthia was blown away by what she called "a secret garden of thoughtful, beautiful installations about important women's issues."

     

    I hope your experience was a positive one. Of course do not hesitate to reach out with any feedback, as we want to continue improving how we support independent artists and organizations through the event.

     

    Wishing you a restful week! Congratulations and best of luck on your future endeavours. I hope our paths will cross again!

     

    Best,

    Shannon

    The Annex played host to several installations late last month for Nuit Blanche Toronto. Nine artists contributed to OnePath Toronto, a group exhibition that explored ideas of identity and nationhood through large-scale and interactive installations on the grounds of Spadina Museum. In Ephemerality (above), a multi-media installation founded on the Greek concept of all things being transitory, Barbara Cook asks if our efforts to improve the environmental condition of Canada and the earth ultimately be transitory.ate to reach out with any feedback, as we want to continue improving how we support independent artists and organizations through the event.

    Made of natural cotton by artist Gloria Stein, River: The Shroud of Buczacz, was a 16 foot by 24 foot topographically accurate scale model of the site in Poland where 1500 Jews were murdered during the course of one night in early spring 1943. Stein’s father, then but a small child, managed to survive the massacre, but the poisoned river would feature in the nightmares of the Holocaust that would haunt him for the rest of his life. The shroud both concealed and revealed as it reminded the viewer of the story’s saddest relic, that “many parts of our precious earth are still being poisoned with the blood of innocent victims”.
