Curatorial Statement for 2013: Off to a flying start
In 2013, we celebrate the centenary of Bicycle Wheel, Marcel Duchamp's first readymade. He combined a bicycle wheel and a stool - and it has become central to the very notion of Art and the artistic attitude towards objects. This century, objects found in the streets, chosen by artists, are displayed in museums. In the context of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, when the entire city becomes an open-air museum for one night, we will take these objects back to the streets and reunite the public with the ubiquitous nature of the artwork
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO MAKE NB 2013 A GREAT EXPERIENCE..

Dress warm,(layering, gloves/hat etc) bring snacks, hydrate, good shoes, and be patient...it is busy night and somewhat chaotic. Plan in advance if taking transit..maybe buy a TTC day pass, biking is possible..but again very busy
ENJOY..and post pictures and comments
