Nuit Blanche 2019

October 5, 2019 / all night

by Mikael Sandblom, Adrian Ooesterman & Olivia Musselwhite

The ephemeral artworks of Nuit Blanche make the places that they briefly occupied permanently richer and more meaningful.

Matthew Giffin at Helio Gallery

by Mikael Sandblom

We interpret these pieces like the half-remembered images and narratives of dreams whose meaning seems familiar but become more elusive and ambiguous the more we try to pin them down.

VAYA at Urban Gallery

by Talia Williams

the viewer is instantly hit with an overwhelming sense of madness. Wild colors and editorial photographs capture your gaze while you stand still in the midst of this artist’s deliberate chaos.

Reverie at Lonsdale Gallery

by Maria Mendoza Camba

True to its theme of imaginings, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann and Beth James allow their audience to envisage the movement of their dreams and thoughts permitting us to see, how they could possibly appear should they have the inventiveness to materialize and move on their own.

Sustenance at Gallery 1313

by Hugh Alcock

all of the works are measured in the sense that they are not obscenely didactic, but rather show restrains with regards to the difficult subject they tackle

Sondra Meszaros at Corkin Gallery

by Maria Mendoza Camba

Meszaros reclaims the female body, putting her in charge of her own fate by stripping her sex-slave identity, as the black veil of pigment covers most of her body from the male gaze, replacing the impulse of male violence with female strength and ferocity.
