Nuit Blanche – Installations In Ward 14

 

 

We are fortunate enough to have some exciting installations in Ward 14 this year for Nuit Blanche.  Grab your friends, family, and neighbours and check out some of the works on Queen St.!

 

 

Along with the events on Queen St, The Revue Cinema will also be hosting a Nuit Blanche event on Roncesvalles.

“The Film Buff, Roncesvalles’ popular video store, is underwriting an all-night Nuit Blanche event at The Revue on Saturday, Sep . 29, starting at 7 p.m.

So,  come to The Revue at night or in the wee hours of the morning. Sit down. Relax. Enjoy some popcorn.

And travel to many Nuit Blanche events through the work of artist and filmmaker Lisa Anita Wegner. She’ll be “pixel painting”, digitally transforming images of the work and performances of other Nuit Blanche participants, which will be transmitted to The Revue. You’ll be able to watch the process on The Revue’s big screen.  ”
