As Nuit Blanche converges on downtown London, museum visitors can gaze up to the ceiling and watch silent short films and listen as local musicians improvise the soundtrack.
Museum London’s Nuit Blanche programming is in partnership with the London Fringe Festival and runs Saturday (June 14) at 7 p.m. to Sunday (June 15) at 1 a.m.
The all-Canadian films span from the years 1906 to 1988 and will be projected in the Museum’s Centre Gallery.
Musician Csaba Kilian will play the violin to five short animations from the 1910s and 1920s, Alexis Castrogiovanni will play the cello to historical documentaries from the 1920s and 1930s, and Sina Khosravi will play the Persian Drum and Piano for historical shorts from the 1930s.
The museum’s upper level will offer a change of pace, with participatory art programs spearheaded by Jeremy Jeresky, director of the New School of Colour, with music provided by local DJs.
Admission is free and there will be a cash bar.
