BYOB ATHENSKVNSTHALLE ΛTHENA
A night of projections and performances curated by Angelo Plessas.
Saturday, 23rd of October 2010from 8pm - until it lastsKerameikou 28 Str, Kerameikos – Metaxourgeio, Athens
Κunsthalle Athena has the honour to host “Bring your own beamer” (BYOB) event, an “exemplary” and crucial gesture supporting creative expression in a period of financial, social and cultural crisis.“Bring your own beamer” (BYOB) exhibition comprises an edition of a broader set of events organised by different artists in different cities every time. In every occasion the organisers choose the participating artists with the aim to experiment and discover “what will occur in site when it is filled with moving light”.In this special evening, under the acronym BYOB (a symbolic reference to bring your own booze parties), artists are invited to bring their own beamer and present any work they choose in any place they desire to. It is a case of “presenting” moving images and performances in a DIY context, expected to evolve organically in progress of the evening. Therefore, a significant aspect of BYOB’s concept is to be realized without the financial support of any third parties beyond the immediate participants.The  first BYOB event was held with great success in Büro Friedrich, Berlin with the initiative of Rafaël Rozendaal and Anne de Vries. Now, curated by Angelo Plessas, BYOB makes its second worldwide appearance in Kunsthalle Athena. All the artists will attend the event, even those who are not based in Athens, so you are welcomed to contact them.
Complementary to the event and during the night a joined performance will take place by artist Angelo Plessas and japanese artist Mai Ueda followed by DJ sets from Amateurboyz and Emile Zile. We believe that such an unrestricted field of expression can surprise even the most demanding audience!
