Waterlow Park

 

 

 

 

LUX Artists Moving Image has moved into a new home located in the picturesque landscape of Waterlow Park in North London. The project has involved the reconfiguration and refurbishment of an existing building in the park. The structure was originally a 19th century greenhouse and has been used more recently as an interpretation centre. Today it is the art agency’s main office and base for their public outreach programme.

The project brings new public life to an underused building, which is already inspiring the creation of art throughout the park. The new uses include an office, film archive, editing suite, exhibition space, study area, library, shop and reception.

LUX is a national public arts agency for the support and promotion of artists working with the moving image. Founded in 2002, it builds on a lineage of its predecessor organisations which stretched buck to the 1960s (The London Filmmakers Co-operative, London Video Arts and The Lux Centre). LUX is the only organisation of its kind in the UK. It represents the country’s only significant collection of artists film and video and is the largest distributor of such work in Europe. www.lux.org.uk
