As days shorten, the Nuit Blanche calls to see the city in a different way, at night, lit by moonlight, neons and other lights. In all parts of Paris, artists will be proposing installations, exhibitions, creations, concerts, and performances to explore all facets of contemporary art and offer a new view of the city. Public transport operates all night so that spectators can design their own route among the dozens of avant-garde projects created by international artists. The Nuit Blanche was first organized in 2002, and, like the Fête de la Musique, it has spread around the world to other cities in France and other European capitals. A proof of its popularity and most of all, of its relevance today.
