LUX is an arts organisation that supports and promotes visual artists working with the moving image. Founded as a charity in 2002 it builds on the work of its predecessor organisations the London Filmmakers Co-operative, London Video Arts and the Lux Centre and a history which stretches back to the 1960s.
LUX offers a rolling programme of exhibitions, screenings, workshops, courses and talks as well as a reference library and mediatheque. LUX also represents the UK’s only significant collection of moving image works produced by visual artists dating from the 1920s to the present day, consisting of over 6000 works by more than 1500 artists.
The programme is open to early to mid-career visual arts curators based in the following countries (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka) who are able to commit to a monthly online workshop series with LUX and ASAP from September 2024, travel to UK for 1 week in Autumn 2024 and work towards an exhibition programme in their home country from late 2024 onwards. We expect to offer up to 5 places, one from each country.
