Bring Your Own Beamer – a series of one-night exhibitions, hosting artists and their projectors, was set up by Berlin-based artist Rafaël Rozendaal, in 2010.
This March it comes to Platform Southwark – a new three-story, multi- disciplinary, project space, which provides a new platform for artistic expression and engagement with the local community – and beyond.
The new cultural hub is the first activity of a proposed mixed-use development by U+I and Transport for London (TfL), who have invited a number of organisations to temporarily occupy the building, whilst curating a series of performances, exhibitions, workshops and events.
These organisations include collective collaboration Brainchild x Vermilion Hook, who will host BYOB – a project that reflects their own open source and inclusive philosophies – this spring. The event will be curated by members of Brainchild’s arts team – Lily Bonesso, Hannah Gill and Sophie Rogers. who are currently holding an open call for submissions.
To submit your work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline: 17:00 February 24th
*** All entrants must own (or be able to borrow) a projector to bring along for the evening.***
March 19th, 18:00 – 22:00
Platform Southwark, 1 Joan Street, London SE1
As this is happening on a Saturday, you’re invited to BYOB (bring your own booze) as well as BYOB (bring your own beamer)!
