Nuit blanche 2018: On Air

Event, in English and French, 3 March 2018, 3pm to 1am

On the occasion of the fifteenth Nuit blanche à Montréal, the CCA hosts a mini-festival of television inspired by its current exhibition The University Is Now on Air: Broadcasting Modern Architecture.

Our galleries will remain open throughout the evening as we play host to different events, all admission-free:

3-1-1 and a half
In Montreal, construction is a big part of our reality: mandatory detours, endless noise, messy streets, dangerous intersections. Since children might see possibilities that adults don’t, the Shaughnessy House will be transformed into a miniature television studio where budding urban planners will be able to present their ideas in front of the camera.
3pm–5pm, Shaughnessy House, in French and English. For children age 4 to 12

Live annotation
Charlotte Lydia Riley, a lecturer in twentieth-century British History at the University of Southampton, presents and comments on a television broadcast of The Open University course “A305: History of Architecture and Design, 1890-1939.”
7pm, Paul Desmarais Theatre, in English

Performances in collaboration with VIVA! Art Action
Artists Alain-Martin Richard, Hugo Nadeau, Sophie Castonguay, Sarah Wendt, and Pascal Dufaux take over the CCA galleries, performing critical and poetic interventions using processes of reception and transmission.
9pm and 11pm

Famous Speech Karaoke
Sherwin Tjia will lead the first-ever Famous Speech Karaoke, giving Nuit blanche participants an opportunity to practice their public speaking by performing memorable broadcasted speeches.
10pm and 12am, main entrance staircase, in French and English

Nuit blanche à Montréal is presented in collaboration with Casino de Montréal as part of MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE.
