Receiver, Jenny Brady, 2019

Call for applications: LUX Online Commissions for Artists who are deaf or hard of hearing

Posted: 14 August, 2020

LUX is inviting applications from Artists who are deaf or hard of hearing based in the UK and Ireland to produce moving image works for LUX Online Commissions.

LUX is the UK agency for the support and promotion of artists working with the moving image and they are launching a new ongoing series exploring access in artists’ moving image, not as an afterthought, but as a creative impetus.

The programme launches in September with an exhibition and events series catalysed by a new moving image work by artist Jenny Brady called Receiver (2019) which considers how we both speak and listen, and the question of who has the right and capacity to be heard. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of performances, talks, screenings and workshops expanding on the themes explored in the work.

As part of this LUX is also inviting UK and Ireland-based artists who are deaf or hard of hearing to apply for two £1,000 commissions to produce new moving image works reflecting on the possibilities of cinema. The works will be shown online on the LUX website for a period of three months from October 2020. If you need more information on the commissions contact Anthony@lux.org.uk or visit https://lux.org.uk/writing/lux-commission-d-deaf-artist

Deadline for Applications: Midnight on 28th August 2020
