This event has now passed.

Bring Your Own Beamer is a collaborative creative art event that's taken place in cities across the world and is set to light up Shanghai's 1933 complex.

The idea, straight from the organisers' collective mouth, is for 'a series of one-night international exhibitions where artists bring their own beamers (projectors) and explore the medium of projection by creating a collaborative happening of moving light, sound, installation and performance.‘

Earlier this summer, BYOB lit up Beijing's hutongs and for Shanghai, 'artists are encouraged to explore [a] BEGIN / END / LOOP theme, in hopes of engaging in the past, present and future inevitable cycles of life, while also referencing the video/film and sound mediums they will be experimenting with.'
