Open Call for the first Maastricht edition of 'Bring Your Own Beamer'
On the night of 15th of April from 20:00 - 24:00 artists and designers are welcome to bring their own projector and show their work on the walls of the Van Eyck during the first Maastricht edition of Bring Your Own Beamer. The Van Eyck organizes this one-night-art event in collaboration with Video Power – the platform that fuels the creative production of moving images in the Euregion – presenting this worldwide phenomenon in the framework of the first Museum night held in the city of Maastricht.
Artists and designers, professionals and students are invited to participate; artwork must be suitable for public display, but aside from that, the walls are yours.
All you need to bring is a projection device and imagery to take part; we will provide a power source and a lots of white walls.
More = More, so we expect audiovisual bravado, visual experiments, quirky animations, remarkable home videos, cutting edge video art and interactive installations!
If you are interested in throwing your own beam, you can sign up and participate in this event by sending an email to Erica Petrillo: firstname.lastname@example.org (deadline 8th of April). Make sure to sign up in time to reserve your spot of white wall!
Everyone is welcome to visit the Van Eyck during the night of 15th of April to experience Bring your own Beamer. BYOB is part of the first Museumnacht Maastricht (Museum Night Maastricht): throughout the city you can visit the participating museums and art institutes of Maastricht from 20:00-24:00, tickets are available here.
