The festivities include the premiere of Hybrid Human, a dance choreographed by Jolene Bailie incorporating the Gallery's feature exhibition Wanda Koop…On the Edge of Experience.

On October 2, the WAG becomes the hub of the city’s first all-night Nuit Blanche event.

The popularity of the event, which coincided with the public opening of the exhibition Wanda Koop: On the Edge of Experience, took the Gallery by surprise: 4,600 partygoers came to the Gallery to take in the exhibitions, listen to DJs and poetry reading, watch classic cult films, and more. Given the crowds, the WAG had to close its doors early, well before the 6 am closing time.
