Nuit Blanche in Paris

October 2016

. - 75 Paris

Description

As the days shorten and autumn turns to winter, the Nuit Blanche event in Paris offers an opportunity to see the city in a new light. For once special night, the city's streets are teeming with people of all ages, lit by moonlight and by strange lights, works of art become the focal point.

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.

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 organised in 2002, and, much like the Fête de la Musique, is a concept which has been taken up by other cities in France and in other countries, its popularity spreading all around the world, proof of its popularity and its relevance today.
