Events — 2 Sep 2016

On Friday September 2, the Stedelijk Museum will open its doors for a one-off Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) exhibition. 

Museum entrance ticket (free under 19 and with Museumkaart)
Teijin Auditorium + Audi gallery 0.1
2 Sep 2016, 6 pm until 8.45 pm
Main language

For this event, many artists, designers and other creatives – and their beamers – were invited to project their work on the blank walls of the Teijin Auditorium. BYOB is an international concept initiated by internet artist Rafaël Rozendaal, which allows artists to fill a space with projections for one night. Everything is permitted, as long as it is projected: from video art, VJ sets and Kinect systems to slideshows and home videos. This 360⁰ exhibition will be on display from 8.15 pm. The evening will include a conversation in the Audi gallery with Rafaël Rozendaal.

In conjunction with this event, on Sunday September 4 the Stedelijk Museum organizes an afternoon with lectures, entitled Painting in the Digital Age, accompanying the exhibition Avery Singer: Scenes (April 23 – October 2, 2016).

Olof van Winden (Mukumu, Kenya - 1976) is director and founder of the TodaysArt festival in The Hague. Over the years, under his leadership, TodaysArt has expanded into an international network of festivals, projects and collaborations in Japan, South-Korea, Mexico, Russia, the Middle East, Canada, the United States and many European countries.

In between Van Winden was also the director of Montevideo/ Netherlands Media Arts Institute in Amsterdam.

His visionary approach and inner urge for a in depth search of new ideas are his drive in forming a worldwide platform for facilitating artists in their creativity and for bringing it as a close and personal experience to the global audience of all backgrounds, cultures, interests and levels.
