About

Bring to Light

Bring to Light: Nuit Blanche New York is a free nighttime contemporary art event that features site-specific installations of light, sound, performance and projection. Each October, Bring to Light invites visitors from around the city and beyond to explore and re-imagine the city at night.

Through a uniquely public exhibition format, Bring to Light facilitates access and creative reuse of the city’s waterfront and creates new possibilities for meaningful collective experience in public space. The festival enables artists of all backgrounds to expand their practice beyond the gallery and museum to engage a large and diverse audience.

Established in 2010, Bring to Light is New York’s contribution to an annual, global tradition of nighttime art events. Established in Paris over 10 years ago, this network of locally organized events has rapidly expanded to Toronto, Brussels, Rome, and dozens of other cities and now draws millions of visitors worldwide.
