Nuit Blanche

I’m psyched about Montreal’s Nuit Blanche this weekend. I am planning on seeing as much as I can. Here’s Saturday night’s hectic schedule:

7pm:  First stop, a dinner reservation at Le Balmoral, a non-profit restaurant for which all surplus revenue goes to helping finance the Jazz Fest.  
8pm:  Starting at 8pm, Bran Van 3000 will play at Quartier des Spectacles. (Oh my, years ago I had such a Bran Van phase – I’m really looking forward to this show.) It’s free, people! Don’t miss out! After Bran Van, we’ll be jetting off to the Belgo and doing a quick tour of the galleries. And by quick, I mean that at....
10pm:  We’ll be heading down to Art Souterrain, where we plan on getting lost in an incredible maze of art. On the top of my list? I want to catch De A à C, an artistic project held at the ARTVstudio. Maybe I'll get my picture taken with Antoine Tavaglione’s Richman. While walking through the Art Souterrain site, I’ll be trying to spot the forty miniature portraits Sylvie Cloutier scattered across the site. (An art hunt? Count me in!)

12am:  Next stop? Mathieu Grenier’s Le cube blanc (O’Doherty). Viewers can meet the artist between midnight and one.

1am:  Catching a free subway ride, we’ll finish off at DHC/ART, open until 2am.

  1. Sounds like fun! So many interesting things to see. Wish I could be there!
    p.s. I totally remember your BranVan phase - you introduced me to them. But was it before or after the coral sweater phase?
