Nuit Blanche 2020 takes a tour of Paris on October 3, 2020 from 18 p.m. to 2 a.m., the time of the last metro and this announcement delights lovers of in-situ art.

Especially since this 19th edition is intended to be “chiseled and delicate” in the words of Christophe Girard, creator of this flagship event and now former deputy in charge of culture at Paris City Hall.

Completely free, these resolutely festive celebrations will take the form of strolls around twenty installations and forty-two proposals in the Off.

The first can be discovered, in groups of ten, in institutions in the city, the second most of the time in the open air.

In the 2020 edition of The White Night, coronavirus obliges, digital will help to respect social distancing.

Thus, visitors will appreciate the giant labels giving information on the artists and their artistic approaches or the Nuit Blanche map available on MAPSTR, allowing them to read all the addresses of the program on their smartphone, to find their way and to get around. .

Near the works, forty cultural mediators recognizable by their white windbreakers will provide visitors with information.

A piece of advice, however, before you travel: in the context of the Covid-19 epidemic, do not hesitate to contact the places to check the programming and access constraints.

Here is our selection for Paris-Centre!
