BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) is a simple art exhibition format wherein artists bring a projector (beamer) to an open space and project moving images for one night only.
Artist Rafaël Rozendaal first ideated this simple concept back in 2010, and since then, BYOB exhibitions have occurred over 200 times in many different cities worldwide and “BYOB Chicago IV” is the fourth Chicago iteration of this international project.
Join us on Saturday, 4/23/16, for a convivial night of moving light and media art projected inside the 6th floor of Mana Contemporary Chicago, a vast space filled with many architectural pillars.
