Nuit Blanche (sorry, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche) can be frustrating: with hundreds of art projects spread across a city for one night only, it is physically impossible to see everything. Beer consumption takes precedence for many, and crowd navigation becomes a survival tactic, precluding real consideration of the work itself (the event’s purported raison d’être). But for all the commotion, every year Nuit Blanche commissions a number of excellent projects that can really give one pause in the midst of the chaos. One way to sift through the deluge is to go small-scale. In this spirit, I’m zeroing in on one curator, one zone and four projects you should probably check out.
