Revolution 33 // Bring Your Own Beamer

Vivid Projects’ acclaimed 33 REVOLUTIONS programme concludes this winter with Bring Your Own Beamer..

Armed with projectors, artists are invited to beam responses to Vivid Projects’ eight-month opening season, 33 REVOLUTIONS, onto the walls of the space.

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 right up to the simmering Arab Spring and Occupy!

Thought provoking encounters between new works and archive from 1950s to the present 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 below.

Deadline is Tuesday 29th October at 23:59. If you’re successful we’ll let you know soon after the deadline!

BYOB Boiler Room – 22nd July

On Monday 22nd July I’ll be off to London to take part in a rather special edition of Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB), which sees the usual barrage of artists project against a backdrop of music from Mark Ronson and others!

This edition of BYOB will feature 28 visual artists (myself included) and will run from 7pm-11pm at a venue somewhere in East London. It’s invite-only, but as with all Boiler Room shows it’ll be streamed live, so tune in!
