Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo Collaborates on Interactive Video Piece for Toronto's Nuit Blanche
Published Apr 23, 2010Since their inaugural year in 2006, the organizers of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche have been responsible for bringing over a million curious bystanders to experience contemporary art presentations in downtown Toronto. The event, which runs from dawn to dusk for one night each fall, is simply billed as "a free all-night contemporary art thing," which means that pretty much anything can happen.
For 2010, the list of curators has been revealed, and among them lies a very interesting choice. According to the National Post, Winnipeg, MB-based contemporary artist Anthony Kiendl is planning an interactive video project with Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo. While details are slim, the newspaper reports that Ranaldo and Kiendl's piece will take place west of Yonge Street, between College Street and Queen Street.
The fifth edition of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche will take place on October 2. As always, it will run from dusk until dawn.
