Polling Booth: Bonne nuit ou ennui?

Toronto’s Nuit Blanche has only been around since 2006, but it has rapidly become one of the city’s premier art events. As mentioned in our nocturnal live coverage and post-mortem roundup, Nuit Blanche has a lot going for it, but it’s still got obvious room to grow. For an event that most people sleep through, however, everyone’s got an opinion on whether or not it lives up to the hype.
For some, the works are underwhelming and too few and far between, yet for others, it’s one of the few times when Toronto steps outside its dreary box—and that’s reason enough to celebrate. You may think it makes modern art accessible to the masses, but perhaps you feel that the installations could be better. Cast a vote, and then head over to last year’s poll to see how it compares.
