LUX Scotland are delighted to add a series of special artist-selected titles to our collection.

These eight titles have been specifically chosen by seven contemporary artists working with moving image in Scotland: Anne-Marie Copestake, Kate Davis, Duncan Marquiss, Charlotte Prodger, Corin Sworn, Sarah Tripp, Stina Wirfelt.
