BYOB Birmingham 2013



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

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.

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 participation form here: Deadline is November 2nd 23:59!
