So what’s new at Nuit Blanche Winnipeg? For the first time, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights opens its doors for Nuit Blanche Winnipeg. We couldn’t be more excited!

#1 “Synapses” by Caroline Monnet

Caroline Monnet’s “Synapses” will be installed outside the Museum’s Group Entrance, where visitors can start their journey. Inspired by tree roots, “Synapses” uses light, sound and intricately textured mirrors to explore how universal modes of communication can bridge divides. The piece is coming from Toronto, where it dazzled at Nuit Blanche 2022, and will be built at the Museum by Joe Kalturnyk.

#2 Music Scene

Offered in partnership with Manitoba Music and Julie Gendron of Manufacturing Entertainment, this feast in Bonnie &; John Buhler Hall will pair six stellar independent musicians with videos on the Museum’s large Welcome Wall. Visitors can take advantage of casual seating and bar service as they watch and listen.

Performer Schedule:

6:00 p.m. French Class

7:00 p.m. Tinge

8:00 p.m. Alpha Toshineza

#3 Projections by Julie Gendron of Manufacturing Entertainment

All six indie artists will perform with Gendron’s mesmerizing projections overlaying the stage. Talented musicians surrounded by thoughtfulart – a unique collaboration only possible at Nuit Blanche!

#4 Ludochroma by Savant Flaneur

Savant Flaneur (with Alex Milevic) will place multiple classical musicians at the Accessible Entrance of the CMHR as visitors leave the Museum. By controlling the lights, visitors can create harmonious interactions between performers, audience and place.
