BYOB is a series of one-night exhibitions in which artists explore the medium of projection using their own â€œbeamersâ€ (projectors). BYOB has taken place in more than 40 cities throughout the world. Originally conceived by artist RafaÃ«l Rozendaal, BYOB Chicago brings together Chicago-based artists to create a collaborative happening of multiple, simultaneous video projections that fill the walls of the museumâ€™s cafÃ©, Puckâ€™s at the MCA. BYOB Chicago is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in collaboration with Nicholas Oâ€™Brien and Brian Khek.
BYOB at the MCA also launches a new 3rd Tuesday series at the MCA called Internet Superheroes to feature art and technology work “who make the virtual world worth living.” All events, including tonight’s extravaganza, last from 6-7pm.
