Paris Nuit Blanche : See you on October 4

Autumn is already upon us, and it’s time to recharge your batteries in preparation for the 13th edition of Nuit Blanche. Indeed, if you’re in Paris on October 4th, you’re in for an all-nighter!   


Every year, museums, monuments, and galleries give you free access to their treasures for an entire night, and the city’s streets and public spaces shine with ephemeral creations by artists from around the world.  Mark Jenkins, Les frères Chapuisat, Motoi Yamamoto, Imran Qureshi, Romain Sein, Jef Aérosol  and many more will participate in this wondrous nocturnal adventure.

This year, the program takes shape around six points of view and sounds more promising than ever: Les futurs composés (Place de l’Hôtel de Ville), the Open Musée Street Art Contemporain (13th arrondissement), Ascensions Magnétiques (near the Tour Montparnasse), À La Lumière des Arbres (Panthéon and Parc Montsouris), etc. Get ready for mind-blowing installations, beautiful exhibits, free concerts, and monumental sculptures. There will be something for everyone.


Since the program is so varied and extensive, you probably won’t have time to see everything. I recommend taking some time to prepare your itinerary in advance, and postponing your plans for the next morning. You can thank me later!
