As part of Nuit Blanche 2022, the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) and York University presents Streams~, an evening of campus-wide exhibitions, art installations, and events featuring 34 artists and showcasing 19 projects located around the central core of York University’s Keele Campus.

Saturday, October 1, from 7pm to 7am, a collective of York University organizations and faculty present this multi-experiential program, including a public conversation with Dele Adeyemo and Nehal El-Hadi; live music performances by Exmiranda, Sydanie, and Keysha Freshh; immersive video projections by Jennifer Dysart, Agnes Meyer-Brandis, Chris Chong Chan Fui, Gayil Nalls; AR and VR interventions by Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning, Mary Bunch, Jenn E Norton, and Michael Palumbo; and sculptural, sonic and video installations by Holly Ward, Lou Sheppard, Michaela Pnacekova, Deirdre Logue, and Jawa El Khash. A full list of artists is below.

The title Streams~ identifies shared commonalities between this concatenation of projects that translate and show us how elements in nature are contained and controlled; planted and extracted; forged and processed; displaced and discarded. Many of the works included in the evenings program examine how we occupy and interact with environmental ecologies from streams to stars as both subject and medium while others revamp and redirect streams of thought by scrutinizing how histories are conveyed, disseminated, and preserved; all share a social position that uses art to both disrupt and restore how we share the continuous flow of our experiences and knowledge. Streams~ are land, people, and consciousness. They can also be endless.

We are pleased to share the work of an esteemed group of artists and curators in alignment with Dr. Julie Nagam’s artistic vision for Nuit Blanche 2022, which follows her “The Space Between Us,” an extensive research project addressing the complex social dynamics of diasporic communities commingling as a whole “to build new spaces and families, shifting their relationships and connections to each other and to place.”
