Art speaks volumes this autumn with the free Nuit Talks program offering in-depth conversations with Nuit Blanche artists and curators. Building on the theme – Continuum – the series of provocative events is framed under the title – A line is a series of points, connected. The insightful discussions, conversations, panels, Q&A’s and performances tackle some of the most relevant and urgent issues of our time: access, opportunity, land, geopolitics, sustainability.
Nuit Talks 2019 is curated by Rebecca Carbin.
Today from 7-8pm you can catch “Art, the Mirror: a talk by Director X at the Royal Ontario Museum!
