The White Night is a partnership between the city and inspired contemporary artists who invite you to rediscover often forgotten places through unique events and installations that are accessible to everyone. A trend that spread around the world was born from the founders' wish to make art available to all – enjoy the original Parisian White Night on the night of October 6 to 7!
Art - and so much more!
Above all, the White Night (Nuit Blanche) is about performances or exhibitions in exceptional places. Petit Palais, Invalides, Palais de la Porte Doree, Paris Zoological Park, Cité des Sciences – just a few examples of the dozens of places showcased by this year's artists; talented artists who express themselves through their preferred mediums: frescoes, videos, performances, choreographies. However, each initiatory route will be interspersed with gastronomic encounters, sports events, and moments of sharing. The White Night is an opportunity to reaffirm Paris as a stage for the democratisation of contemporary art.
