An evening of contemporary art evoking Paris’s original Nuit Blanche
Saturday October 4, 2014
Opening ceremony at 6 pm at the Kyoto International Manga Museum
Every autumn, Paris stages a one-night festival called Nuit Blanche (“White Night”) celebrating contemporary art. Kyoto, a sister city of Paris, holds the companion event “Nuit Blanche Kyoto” in various spots around the city for people to enjoy both Japanese and French contemporary artworks for free. Lighting up Kyoto’s night is a varied program including performances, exhibitions, and projection mapping on building exteriors. The theme for this, the fourth year of the festival, is “Contemporary Art Meets Traditional Crafts,” promising a wide-ranging program. Who knows what discoveries await you along the promenade of contemporary art!
