CREATE - DEPLOY - ENGAGE
Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2009
Zone A, Toronto Downtown (Yonge & Dundas & Bay)
What Were We Before? The area around Yonge, Dundas and Bay Streets is an environment that is participatory, interactive and inclusive - a space where the public can become inspired and engaged in their own individual encounters with art. What were we before? will be a nocturnal urban fantasia through which the moving crowds will ponder their individual pasts and present within the context of Toronto’s own history and of the larger expression of art on a grand scale.
“Any revolutionary project today, whether utopian or realistic, must if it is to avoid banality, make the re-appropriation of the body, in association with the re-appropriation of space into a negotiable part of its agenda” - The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre, 1974
