ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Nuit Blanche 2017 / Paris
October 7, 2017 / 7pm-7am

As the days shorten in autumn, the Nuit Blanche event in Paris offers an opportunity to see the city in a new light. For one special night, the city’s streets are teeming with people of all ages, lit by the moon, works of art become the focal point. Here are some highlights from the previous editions:

On the first Saturday in October, artists take over various areas of the city, with installations, exhibitions, street art, light and sound shows, concerts, performances, trails, staged scenes and creations exploring all facets of contemporary art. The 2017 edition will take place October 7, 2017, from 7pm-7am, propelled with a particular emphasis placed on art of collaboration and the collective.

Public transport stays open throughout the night so that spectators can create their own routes among the dozens of avant-garde projects put in place by international and home-grown artists.

The Nuit Blanche was first organized in 2002, and, much like the Fête de la Musique, is a concept which has been taken up by other cities in France as well as internationally, its popularity spreading all around the world, from Brussels to Kyoto, Melbourne to Taipei, 35 cities who have sculpted their event after Nuit Blanche as a testament of its popularity and its relevance today.
