The 14th annual Nuit Blanche Toronto filled the city’s streets with nearly 90 contemporary art projects on Oct. 5.

The projects involved more than 300 local, national, and international artists. This year featured two City of Toronto-produced curated exhibitions, in addition to a large-scale artist installation that used the event-wide curatorial theme of Continuum.

“Nuit Blanche Toronto creates significant artistic and cultural energy in our city,” said Toronto mayor, John Tory. “By making a wide spectrum of contemporary art accessible and enjoyable for everyone, it is as much a celebration of our diversity as it is a showcase for the creativity of our talented artists.”
