Founded in 2002, in the summer of 2016, it relocated to Waterlow Park, Highgate after 14 years in Hackney. In 2014 LUX also established another agency in Scotland.
LUX is an international arts agency that supports and promotes artists’ moving image practices and their surrounding ideas. 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.
