Nuit Blanche: The Weight of History
October 03 - October 04
401 Richmond Street West, Freight Elevator
Nuit Blanche 2015

Focused on the natural, built, and cultural layers that make Toronto a rich urban environment, the Myseum presented ‘The Weight of History’. Participants were asked to label balloons with pivotal and controversial moments in Toronto history. They added or removed weight from the balloons, depending on whether they considered them as thematically heavy or light. The balloons continually rose and fell creating a visual installation in the freight elevator at 401 Richmond.
