The Toronto Star announces plans for the city’s Nuit Blanche which takes place–surprisingly–in October:
With an abundance of star power at this year’s Nuit Blanche, it might be fair to say that the city-initiated, Scotiabank-endorsed all-night “contemporary art thing” might be truly coming of age.
Now in its fourth year, the sunset-to-sunrise event, which scatters hundreds of contemporary art works and installations throughout the central portions of the city, announced this morning an enviable roster of some of the contemporary art world’s biggest names.
One of the best-known pieces by American artist Jeff Koons, whose most minor work now sells for millions, will be installed in the Eaton Centre. A giant balloon-animal bunny, in brilliant chromium plastic, will set suspended from the mall’s atrium-like girders, while outside, at the corner of Bay and Dundas, iconic American video artist Bill Viola will project his work on the wall of Canadian Tire.
