Nuit Blanche '10

Nuit Blanche describes itself as a free all-night contemporary art event where people take to the streets to witness and be memorized by hundreds of different contemporary artists (List of artist can be seen here)

The event starts at sundown and ends at sunrise so it makes for quite the night. There was no way I was going to miss it.

Considering I live about a block away from Dundas Square it was definitely not difficult to find the action.

First thing I experienced was a dub step parade. Yes, a parade with one of my favorite genres of music SUPER loud. Score.

Of coarse there was live music and dance parties. And of coarse I photographed it:

What a night. Every street seemed to just be one big party. Can't wait until next year.

THANKS!
