NUIT BLANCHE 2018


Join us on Saturday, September 29, for an unparalleled night of art, music, storytelling, comedy, and dance in celebration of Nuit Blanche 2018, Toronto’s annual all-night art festival.

 This year’s program, Arrivals and Encounters, takes inspiration from the many cross-cultural interactions that shape our city. It showcases more than 80 artists in over 30 performances and two installations across 10 unique spaces at the Aga Khan Museum, Aga Khan Park, and the Ismaili Centre, Toronto.

 In the Aga Khan Park, experience Javid a.k.a JAH’s The Mingling of the (two) Oceans inside the Reflecting Pools. The 10-piece installation features paintings on re-purposed corrugated steel, and explores Vedic and Sufi sacred geometries (e.g. chakras and muqarnas).

 Surrounding the Reflecting Pools, you will also find free music, dance, and comedy performances inside two Mongolian yurts. For those interested in joining in with the musicians there is an all-night jam session in an Indigenous teepee.

 And be sure not to miss CHIKANISHING CREEK, a performance/art installation by Anishinaabe creator Brian Solomon. Visitors are invited to step into a 1969 Airstream trailer that Solomon has transformed. He will then offer a one-on-one reading of each visitor’s spirit.

 Inside the Museum and the Ismaili Centre, Toronto even more diverse programming awaits, including:

  • Expand your musical horizons with artists like Säye Skye, Narcy, Kaia Kater, Bernice, Moskitto Bar, Tafelmusik, JOYFULTALK, and many more

  • Go on an inner journey with Sufi music, meditation, and whirling dervishes in celebration of the 811th anniversary of Rumi’s birthday

  • Bring the whole family to Rumi’s Fables, a new production from the Iranian-Canadian Composers of Toronto

  • Welcome sunrise with Native Women in the Arts

  • Enjoy the rare chance to experience sunrise raags

  • Take advantage of FREE admission to the first floor Museum Collections gallery until 12 am
