LUX presents The Adverts, three solo exhibitions examining how image and display function in the public realm through a live, shifting programme format. Each exhibition features new, specially commissioned month long works, exploring and questioning the representational status of images through interventions into, and an exposition of, the structures of display they inhabit.

The first solo exhibition will be Sebastian Buerkner's That was your dog, a continuation in an ongoing investigation into the syntax and structure of filmic representation and its sub­version. A stream of animated snapshots reveals the high points of life, each anecdote, visual vignette, sound element, musical refrain and passage of dialogue distorting to build new sequences in random progression over the exhibition duration.

Tuesday 4 September
Sebastian Buerkner will present a live performance by members of Choir East to accompany the opening of his exhibition.

Tuesday 6 November
LUX will present a second live event for 'The Adverts'.


Canary Wharf Screen is an innovative motion-picture screening programme initiated by Art on the Underground. Presented on one of the capital's largest public projection screens, this exciting seasonal programme presents leading contemporary and historical artists' moving image for our customers, staff and visitors free of charge. The inaugural 2012 series is programmed in collaboration with Film and Video Umbrella, Animate Projects, LUX and British Film Institute (BFI), four of the UK's finest moving image organisations.  

LUX is a national public arts agency for the support and promotion of artists working with the moving image. LUX represents the country's only significant collection of artists' film and video and is the largest distributor of such work in Europe.
