On 12 October 2013 from 7pm – 3am, Nuit Blanche Video 2013 will take place for the first time across galleries in Central London. Over the course of an evening, members of the public will be able to view the exhibited works of French video artists in the windows of some of the British capital’s best-known art galleries.
Works by artists including Arnaud Dezoteux, Pierre Huyghe, Sophie Calle, Cyprien Gaillard and Ivan Argote will be shown at galleries like The Photographer’s Gallery, White Cube, Marlborough Contemporary, Sprüth Magers and Victoria Miro’s new Mayfair space.
The public will be able to map the city walking from one gallery to the next with the chance to discover the French contemporary art scene. Nuit Blanche Video originally came to life in the French capital and has already proven to be a successful part of Paris’ annual dusk-til-dawn arts festival Nuit Blanche.
The organizers Marie Shek, Yasmine Datnow and Maïa Morgensztern, hope that the success of Nuit Blanche Video will help create a reciprocal arrangement with Parisian galleries and exhibit the works of British artists next year, strengthening cultural ties between the two cities.
