Who we are
LUX is an international arts agency that supports and promotes artists’ moving image practices and the ideas that surround them. Founded in 2002 as a charity and not-for-profit limited company, the organisation builds on a long lineage of predecessors (The London Film-Makers’ Co-operative, London Video Arts and The Lux Centre) which stretch back to the 1960s. The only organisation of its kind in the UK, LUX represents the country’s only significant collection of artists’ film and video, and is the largest distributor of such work in Europe. LUX works with a large number of major institutions including museums, galleries, festivals and educational establishments, as well as directly with the public and artists. The organisation’s main activities are distribution, exhibition, publishing, education, research, and professional development support for artists and arts professionals. SUPPORT US Every year we fundraise to support the care, development and provide access to the collection, to undertake support and development work with artists and support creative educational opportunities. LUX is currently developing a new public space in Waterlow Park, Highgate and is working towards becoming an accredited national museum. Your support would enable us to secure the future of the collection and make it more accessible to the public.
