Vintage Blue for Nuit Blanche

Nuit Blance exhibit at The ArQuivesExhibit dates: 

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Reception date & time: 

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Description: 

The night has always been a time for those outside the mainstream to communicate themselves more freely. After all, it was by the cover of night that provided many queers the opportunity to mingle, explore their sexuality and reveal their truest selves. For Nuit Blanche, the Archives has dug into its vintage collection of moving pictures to create an exhibition that examines what happens behind closed doors through a historical context.  As you engage with the work you becomes the voyeur into The ArQuives’s house, taking pleasure in the desires and fantasies of others.  Consider the range of representations and effects of erotic imagery, its power as a representational form and how it has influenced our sexual desires, identities and behaviours.

Come to “Vintage Bleu for Nuit Blanche” Saturday, October 2 from 7:00pm to midnight. Come see an outdoor projection at the Archives in celebration of Nuit Blanche! We’ll be sharing works from our extensive moving image collection transforming our beautiful home.

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:

As we continue our efforts to make The ArQuives more accessible, we are renovating the front of the house to add a ramp to the front entrance. Please note that there will not be any construction work done during public service hours. Should there be any disruptions affecting our access to the front door and/or work in the house during this process, we will post a notice as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to make The ArQuives more accessible to all. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Executive Director, Raegan Swanson, at executivedirector@arquives.ca


The ArQuives is located on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The ArQuives strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
