This year's Nocturne: Art at Night event is going to be spectacular. This Halifax art festival celebrates Nova Scotia's visual artists with installations at local art galleries, free-standing displays to experience, and arts programming that inspires anyone and everyone to experience art in a new way. Running from October 13 to 15, several Talent Trust scholarship recipients will have works on display. Here's where to find them:
Arjun Lal: Anchor Artist
"Full Moon is a 3 day portal accessible throughout the Nocturne Art at Night Festival.
How do we move when we are stuck?
I have been searching for portals. The ephemeral moments where places and times intersect and create gateways into other spaces. Accessible points within the universe that generate movements and changes."
2 Ochterloney St, Dartmouth, NS B2Y 4W1
Letitia Fraser: Anchor Artist
"It Takes Generations: my becoming an artist has been a journey that started long before I was born. The struggles and challenges faced by my African Nova Scotian ancestors have cleared a path that I could emerge at just the right time – in THIS time and space."
Viewing for Windsor Foundation Lecture Theatre (wheelchair accessible): Oct 13th, 5 pm-9 pm, Oct 15th, 6 pm-midnight
"Meet Me at the Dinner Table: three audio-recorded voices are heard over a dinner table but any physical clues of who these individuals are remain absent.
The materiality of this sound installation reflects on the complicated detached memories of diasporic communities from their food systems due to effects of migration, ecological shifts in food production, or recipes lost in time. Each voice yearns for experiences they no longer have access to—and their desires speak volumes."
1880 Hollis St, Wheelchair accessible
"Carry the Spark is an evening of live performance and art inspired by the legacies of the environmental movement in Mi’kma’ki /Nova Scotia, featuring the work of extraordinary local artists."
6036 Coburg Rd
Oct 13th, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
"I Am What I Am is a group show based on constructs of identity. In this travelling and ever-evolving group show participating artists have been asked to showcase work that asks us to probe ideas surrounding who we are, how we are perceived, and why does it all matter?"
6016 University Ave
