Nuit Blanche


Last year Mercer Union participated in the inaugural Scotiabank Nuit Blanche by keeping its doors open all night (Michelle Allard and Maider Fortune were exhibiting at the time) and presenting a discreet installation in the tree across the street by internationally renowned DJ and sound artist Tim Hecker.

This year we will once again stay up until 7am, with the Instant Coffee "Nooks" exhibition. (More details on this to follow)

Additionally, we've annexed the vacant space next door where Misha Glouberman (School Learning, Trampoline Hall, etc.) will present "Terrible Noises for Beautiful People", a participatory noise project, as well as a performance of John Zorn's "Cobra."

Contact dave@mercerunion.org for more information. Also visit www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca for the schedule of events taking place throughout the city, or www.viewoncanadianart.blogspot.com, where Andrea Carsons previews some of the highlights of the night.
