That’s all it takes to transform Ikuinen Galleria and corridors around it. Bring Your Own Beamer event did just that. 

BYOB happened on 28th of March in Ikuinen Galleria, Finlayson, where many creative student broth their work and projected it on all possible surpasses. However BYOB was not only about showing your work. It was great opportunity to get together, meet other creative people and just talk, enjoy.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) is a series of one-night-exhibitions hosting artists and their projectors. It was organized already all over the world and it was about time to bring this event also to Tampere. However organizers made it even easier than usually. Everything was already there; beamers, computers, DVD players, power and some food and drinks. We only broth our works and enjoyed. So big thanks goes to Satu Leskinen and Elina Ylhäisi for organizing everything.

Ikuinen gallery is a contemporary art project space located in the old factory complex Finlayson in central Tampere. The gallery is run by a board of fine art students in Tampere UAS School of Art and Media as part of their study program. Ikuinen gallery’s main focus is in presenting interesting and high quality student work, whereas work from other art school students and teachers as well as visiting artists are regularly also at show.
