LUX is pleased to announce Parwana Haydar as the LUX resident curator/producer for 2023/24.
The resident producer/curator receives free office space and admin support, access to LUX space, programme and networks as well as mentoring support from LUX staff for 12 months.
Parwana Haydar is a London-based filmmaker and curator. She is a graduate of Other Cinemas film school and of South London Gallery’s REcreative film school. She is a member of the Afghan Visual Arts and History Collective (AVAH) an independent curatorial research collective and multimedia platform that highlights art coming from Afghanistan and its diaspora. She has curated film screenings with Derry Void Gallery in Ireland, Independent Cinema Office at the BFI in London and most recently with the traveling cinema Terassen in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her own film and video work explore the gaps between realism, surrealism and the speculative.
