Art Licks Weekend Moving Image Programme, in association with LUX and SPACE

For this year’s Art Licks Weekend Moving Image Programme, LUX and SPACE present their second Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) event. BYOB is an international movement of DIY one-night-exhibitions where artists collaborate on-site to create an installation of moving image. BYOB was started by visual artist Rafael Rozedaal and events have been held in over 40 international cities.

The SPACE/LUX BYOB presents work from artists and filmmakers working in moving image who responded to the event’s Open Call earlier in the month.

The artist moving image programme has been curated by Matt Carter/ LUX since 2014.

Art Licks

Art Licks launched in 2010 and has since grown to provide an essential platform and voice for the lesser-known and under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in London. The organisation currently exists in several strands of activity: as a website, tours, events, printed magazine and its festival, the Art Licks Weekend.
