Nuit Blanche 2018

Saturday September 29, 7 pm - Sunday September 30, 7 am
Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier: Ancient Forest Alliance

To celebrate the launch of the AGO’s major fall exhibition, Anthropocene, visitors during Nuit Blanche Toronto will be invited to contemplate how all of us (individually and collectively) are leaving a profound human signature on the planet.

In this video installation, Anthropocene artists Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier will create a compelling immersive experience in the AGO’s Walker Court, offering visitors the opportunity to experience both old-growth forest and deforestation on Vancouver Island, and to consider pristine environments and our impact on them.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, in partnership with Fondazione MAST.

Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier are multiple award-winning filmmakers who also work in video installation, most recently producing content for the Tragically Hip’s Fully Completely and Man Machine Poem tours (2014/2016), as well as Watermark Cubed for Nuit Blanche 2013 and Ice Forms for the AGO’s 2016 Lawren Harris exhibition.

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations. Learn more about accessibility at the AGO.
