Nuit Blanche 2011

Nuit Blanche 2010
This weekend it's the 10th edition of the Nuit Blanche in Paris. The all nighter event sees cultural activities happen from dusk on Saturday until dawn on Sunday throughout the capital. This year, there are four different zones of nocturnal fun, all linked by metro lines 12 and 14 - the first is in the centre, around Hotel de Ville, and then the other three are in the North: 
Batignolles - Pigalle, la Nouvelle Athènes - Saint‑Georges, Montmartre - Anvers. Over thirty artists from around the world are participating, and over 50 projects will be contributing to this diverse and rich annual event. It's one of Paris' most interesting cultural events - don't miss out!

Our top picks are: 
Isaac Julien's The Leopard at 3 rue Lobau 
Steve McQueen's Girls Tricky at La Cigale
Christian Boltanski's Demain le Ciel sera Rouge at Theatre de l'Atelier
Renaud Auguste-Dormeuil's I will keep a light burning at Square Louise Michel
