Revolution 33 // Bring Your Own Beamer

Vivid Projects’ acclaimed 33 REVOLUTIONS programme concludes this winter with Bring Your Own Beamer, a one-night event curated by Antonio Roberts

Armed with projectors, artists are invited to beam responses to Vivid Projects' eight-month opening season, 33 REVOLUTIONS, throughout the space. Walls, floor, ceiling: all available.

Launched in February 2013, 33 REVOLUTIONS asks the question, can art and popular culture act as a catalyst for social change? The programme has taken audiences on a journey through film, print, performance and song, celebrating personal acts of protest and resistance from the anti-institutional spirit of 1960s-70s Britain through Riot Grrrl and radical black politics right up to the simmering Arab Spring and Occupy!

Thought provoking encounters between new works and
archive from have addressed ways in which filmmakers and artists from a diverse range of cultural situations and societies have protested. For details on the full programme visit: www.vividprojects.org.uk

You can bring your own beamer too - if you would like to make a response to 33 Revolutions and you have a projector, please fill in the form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1T-VQVyimx8q6yLux3eawYgd5hXjVGpqDavP_kycr2BY/

Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) is an international series of one-night exhibitions inviting artists, armed with films and projectors, to convene and explore the art of projection in an immersive environment of moving light, sound and performance. BYOB is an idea originally conceived by Berlin-based artist Rafael Rozendaal.
