Streams ~ Nuit Blanche 2022

The Project
The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) and York University presents Streams ~ Nuit Blanche 2022 at York University, an evening of campus-wide exhibitions, art installations, and events featuring 34 artists and showcasing 18 projects located around the central core of York’s Keele Campus and surrounding the Harry Arthur Commons.

Each artwork and program is conceived as a distinctive whole, but the title Streams ~ identifies their shared commonalities in theme, process, and research methodology. Many of the works included in the evenings program examine how we occupy and interact with environmental ecologies from streams to stars as both subject and medium while others revamp and redirect streams of thought by scrutinizing how histories are conveyed, disseminated, and preserved; all share a social position that uses art to both disrupt and restore how we share the continuous flow of our experiences and knowledge. Streams ~ are land, people, and consciousness. They can also be endless.

A printed guide and map will be available as well as accessible at
