White Night Bratislava
White Night is a prestigious international art project designed to bring the contemporary forms of art to the public as well as untraditional, unrecognized and significant places of European metropolis.
The White Night originated in Paris in 2002. It was visited by over two and a half million people in 2013. From Paris, for several years, the project has expanded into places such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Santa Monica, Montreal, Toronto, Rome, Tel Aviv, Gaza, Jerusalem, Madrid, Turin, Naples, St. Petersburg, Košice and Bratislava.
After five successful years in the city Košice, the White Night expanded in 2015 into the capital of the Slovak Republic, Bratislava, linking thus east and west Slovakia with contemporary art.
The White Night offers visitors an unusual artistic walk through a nightlife town full of experiences and new impulses, that last from sunset to sunrise. During one extraordinary weekend, the night becomes the day, and the streets of the night city are filled with people and art. Besides various kinds of art visitors discover interesting spaces, which are exceptionally multimedia, interactive and contemporary, such as courtyards, parks, stations, bridges, waterfront, metro, swimming pools, shopping centers, car parks, private spaces, and various places usually inaccessible.
The White Night is an example of digital arts and performances in the public spaces of the city, which connects the public with space and enhances the perception of space.
