White Night at ARTIS Gallery
SATURDAY 18 MARCH • 6 – 10PM
Auckland Arts Festival’s one-night arts extravaganza White Night is back! As part of the event, ARTIS Gallery will be open 6-10pm this Saturday 18 March, and will feature installations by artist Susannah Bridges alongside our current exhibition — John Blackburn ‘Mayfair to Muriwai 2017‘.
White Night is a unique opportunity to experience a diverse range of art activities — brought to you by artists, performers, musicians and makers of all description, across 100 venues and locations across Auckland City.
White Night is a city-wide night of the arts which originated in Europe and has spread to cities around the globe, including Cairo, Berlin, Barcelona, Melbourne, to name but a few. The name ‘White Night’ derives from the Parisian event nuit blanche (literally, night white; figuratively, a sleepless night, referring to the fact some venues in the international versions of this event stay open all night!)
White Night was held in New Zealand for the first time in 2011 as part of the Auckland Arts Festival, then again in 2013, 2015 and 2016. We received overwhelming feedback from participants and audience, who said the event was “Ah-maaaazing!” and “made you fall in love with your city again.”
