Nuit Blanche
KYOTO 2017

Friday October 6th, 2017

Every autumn, Paris stages Nuit Blanche (“White Night”), a one-night festival celebrating contemporary art. Kyoto, a sister city of Paris, holds the companion event“ Nuit Blanche Kyoto” in various locations around the city. The Kyoto edition is a “O matsuri” dedicated to contemporary creation and focuses on Japanese and French emerging artists introduced to a wide audience along a journey into Kyoto heritage venues and art spots. Kyoto’s night is lighted up by a varied program including free dance and circus performances, exhibitions, and outdoor projection mapping. The theme for the seventh edition of the festival is “Landscape, the city in movement” and presents a selection of new trends and experimentations. So what about an art-promenade from surprises to discoveries in the vibrant autumn night of the heart of Japan?
