Night of Ideas


A program of Figures of Sleep

 

To sleep or not to sleep

Thinking through the night with artists, writers, philosophers, historians, neuroscientists and other restless minds

In partnership with the Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Canada and Hart House, the Art Museum is one of the first Canadian institutions to take part in this French-initiated global, all-night event happening simultaneously in more than 50 cities. Night of Ideas will bring together international artists, writers, philosophers, historians, neuroscientists and other restless minds to tackle such wide-ranging subjects as the neuroscience of sleep, the meaning of downtime, the health impact of sleeplessness, the cultural importance of dreaming, and the architecture and politics of sleep.

The audience will be able to engage directly in conversation with these thinkers as part an intensive series of keynote lectures, workshops, performances, screenings and readings.
