Open Call /// BYOB _ Lx

Zaratan - Arte Contemporânea invites all the artists who want to participate in the first Portuguese edition of BYOB, an one-night-exhibition dedicated to moving images happening on the 31st of March in Lisbon.
The word "BYOB" is an acronym for "Bring Your Own Beamer" In Europe projectors are often referred to as “beamers”.
In addition to invite a number of artists linked to the audiovisual medium to present their own work, we encourage emerging artists, who have little or no experience in presenting their work in an exhibition setting to apply.

If you wish to participate, please send an email to with the subject "BYOB_LX" with:

- Name;
- Bio;
- Link of the video to be projected;
- Whether or not you have a video projector + projection devices.

Applications will be received until the 19th of March 2017.

If you do not own a projector, there are some useful resources online to build your own using some low cost materials and your DIY skills, or you can ind cheap second hand overhead and slide projector. When submitting work keep in mind that you will need headphones if your piece requires sound and to consider additional hardware required to project the work (media players, harddrive etc).

If you cannot be physically present in Lisbon, there is no reason to give up: you can send your video by e-mail, and we will have a number of devices to host the proposals that we receive online. The event will be broadcast live streaming through Zaratan's facebook page.
