Nuit Blanche 2011
The 10th edition of the city’s annual all-night arty party la Nuit Blanche will focus on two major zones, around the Marais and an area stretching from Anvers to Batignolles, via Pigalle, Montmartre, and the ‘New Athens’ neighbourhood in the 9th. The artistic directors this year are the curating duo from the MAC/VAL, Alexia Fabre and Frank Lamy, and they’ve selected about 30 artists from around the world – Quebec, Germany, Finland, Japan, Buenos Aires or Paris – and including Steve McQueen, Douglas Gordon and Christian Boltanski, who will present in many cases a site-specific work for the, very special, occasion. Don’t miss it.
