How can I find if a particular work is in LUX’s collection?
LUX Scotland does not yet have a public collection but it facilitates the LUX collection, which is listed in an online catalogue. If there is an artist or a work you cannot find listed, just email us and if we do not hold it we will try to direct you to another source.
Can I view works from LUX collection?
All the works in the LUX collection are available to view onsite at LUX in London and at the LUX Scotland office at Trongate 103, Glasgow. There is an administration charge of £5 for viewings at the LUX Scotland office. Please note this service is often oversubscribed, so please give as much notice as possible when contacting us to arrange an appointment. A complete list of works is available in the online catalogue, but please note that not all works will be available to view at short notice. A selection of works is available to view online. To book a viewing session please fill out the Collection Viewing Form. The collection can also be accessed remotely by coming a subscriber, please contact us at scotland [at] lux.org.uk for details.
Can I buy a DVD of a particular work?
LUX mostly acts as a distributor for public screenings or exhibitions, but some works are available for individuals to purchase on DVD through our online store.
How do I order a film for a screening/exhibition?
We distribute some basic information on ordering. To check costs, availability etc of particular works please send us an email with the details of your event to our distribution email.
Can I submit my work for LUX Scotland’s collection?
LUX Scotland does not accept unsolicited submissions. Due to limited resources, LUX Scotland is only able to take on a very small number of new Scottish and Scotland-based artists every year, which it does through an acquisition panel which meets quarterly to make recommendations. However we try to offer a range of other opportunities for artists to interact with LUX Scotland and to show us their work, from monthly One-on-one meetings with artists to the Critical Forums in Glasgow and Dundee, all of which are announced in the LUX Scotland Bulletin. The bulletin also contains other useful information about upcoming festival submission deadlines, residency opportunities etc. Subscribe to the LUX Scotland Bulletin.
How can I discuss/ show my work to LUX Scotland?
Every month we have one day of free one-hour sessions for artists who are not currently in full time education to look at work and discuss professional development. The date of the sessions is always announced on the first day of the month in our monthly email newswire. Please note, sessions book out very quickly and are booked on a first-come first-served basis. Please see the One-on-One Advice page for more information.
Can I do an internship at LUX Scotland?
Yes, LUX Scotland offers part-time internships (normally one or two days a week for three months) in a variety of roles. Internships are always advertised both in our monthly email newswire and in the jobs section of the website.
Does LUX Scotland have equipment to hire?
LUX Scotland does not currently have any film or exhibition equipment for hire.
