From sunset at 7:03 pm on Saturday, September 29, to sunrise at 7:14 am on Sunday, September 30, 2007,
Toronto was bustling with activity as thousands experienced a full night of contemporary art and performance
in three zones across the city.
Exhibitions Rhonda Corvese curated the Zone A Exhibition, and invited participants to examine urban civilization and encounter a world turned upside-down. The Zone B Exhibition, curated by Michelle Jacques, explored the diverse multiple histories and geographies that embody The Grange and Chinatown areas. In the West Queen West/Liberty Village boundaries of Zone C, curator Camilla Singh created an exhibition that pushes past usual bedtimes, engaging imaginations in a supernatural city.
Independent Projects 125 Toronto museums, galleries, cultural and educational institutions, and neighbourhoods participated with more than 150 individual city-wide projects. Each partner opened their doors all night long for this one evening. Admission was free and many of them collaborated with new and established artists to offer unique experiences. From interactive video art, a balloon maze, an all-night Salsa dance party and steamy saunas to floating clouds, Parisian vampires, a pom pom exchange and electro acoustic music, these Independent Projects made September 29, 2007 an unforgettable night.
