LUX opened on Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, in 2002 to continue and extend the work of its predecessors as an agency particularly based around the distribution and collection activities of the LFMC and LEA. Working through distribution, collection, exhibition, screening, professional artists support and education, LUX continues advocate for and support the practice and discourse of artists’ moving image in the UK. In the summer of 2016, LUX relocated to Waterlow Park, Highgate after 14 years in Hackney. In 2014 LUX also established LUX Scotland, a new agency for the support and promotion of artists working with the moving image in Scotland, more information about this at www.luxscotland.org.uk
