What is SUPERLUX?

What do I get from being a member of SUPERLUX?

SUPERLUX members can attend free SUPERLUX events and workshops, apply for bursaries and book slots to view the LUX collection at our LUX Scotland office.

I’m not an artist. Can I join SUPERLUX?

Yes. SUPERLUX is open to everyone based in Scotland. Our benefits are geared towards artists, researchers, curators and programmers primarily working in the field of artists’ moving image work.

How can I view the LUX collection?

SUPERLUX viewing sessions take place every Wednesday afternoon at the LUX Scotland office in Glasgow. You can request to view specific works in the LUX collection using our online form. Learn more about the collection at LUX’s website.

 

How can I sign up for a one-on-one advice session?

We release bookable slots for one-on-one sessions via our SUPERLUX Events page. These one-hour sessions are for artists based in Scotland, working with moving image and who are no longer in full-time education, to meet with LUX and LUX Scotland staff and invited guests. These are informal sessions aimed at developing a wide-ranging dialogue around your practice and can involve any or all of the following areas:

– Looking at and discussing your work

– Advice on developing your practice and looking at other works that may be of interest

– Advice on exhibition possibilities, appropriate organisations and events to approach

– Self-promotion, funding, and production advice

You are welcome to bring work for us to look at. (Please bring it on a laptop, USB stick or external hard-drive. We would advise not to bring too much work and to *not* rely on streaming your work from the internet. You can also bring other material to discuss too, like project or practice descriptions.) It is important to us that LUX Scotland is an open organisation that is accessible to everyone, however we are a very small team and do not have the resources to meet as many people as we would like. We ask that those who have already attended a one-on-one session within the previous six months get in touch directly with the office before booking another session.

Can a one-on-one session come to my town?

We aim to offer one-on-one sessions outside of Glasgow every other month. If you would like LUX Scotland to come to you and do a day of advice sessions/studio visits please get in touch. We try to offer sessions where we are also doing events around the country.

Why is SUPERLUX free at the moment?

SUPERLUX has been made free through generous support from Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
