We are pleased to announce the Calgary edition of the international exhibition series Bring Your Own Beamer. The premise of BYOB is to ask local media based artists to bring their own projectors to a physical location in order to showcase recent work. BYOB has already taken place in over a fifty cities worldwide, involving artists of an extended and dispersed networked community.
Originally conceived by Berlin-based artist Rafael Rozendaal, BYOB Calgary (organized by Rick Silva and Justin Waddell) will bring together 20+ Calgary-based artists to create a collaborative happening of moving light and sound. Various interpretations of the initial idea of BYOB have spawned several different approaches that include ad hoc installations, performances, and other immersive environments of DIY spontaneity and experimentation.
BYOB Calgary will be hosted by the Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Centre, located at 1418 7 AVE NW on Saturday Feb 11th starting at 7pm. Cash bar.
