BYOB Linz && grrrilla galleries

BYOB Linz is a screening event taking place on September 1st and 2nd in public spaces around the city of Linz. "Bring Your Own Beamer" is a "frenchise" exhibition format originally conceived of by Rafael Rozendaal. Artists team up with a beamer and project their videos in a gallery setting for an evening. In the case of BYOB Linz, this gallery is called grrrilla galleries. This is a purely time-spaced gallery that operates in a guerilla gardening style, temporarily occupying public spaces.

BYOB Linz I + II will take place on:
Thursday, September 1st, starting at 22:00, @ the underpath next to the ars electronica quarter (photos)
Friday, September 2nd, starting around 21:30 (after the prix ars gala), danube park in front of brucknerhaus
