Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night) at Canal Saint-Martin

This year, Nuit Blanche focuses on 4 Parisian areas, including the Marais to République and Canal Saint-Martin quarters, both just steps away from Hotel Mareuil. From Place de la Bataille de Stalingrad to Point Ephémère and Gare de l’Est, and from the newly renovated Place de la République to the square in front of the City Hall, discover amazing light setups, video projections and fascinating works of art. A favorite of ours: the art of contemporary artist Felix Gonzales-Torres (1957-1996), dedicated to fighting racism, violence and AIDS. His works will be on exhibit at the Mairie of the 4th arrondissement and at the church of Saint-Eustache. Experience the magic in these areas, with their curtains of pearls and strings of lights.
