How We Work

Lumen Art Projects is a not-for-profit organisation based in the UK, dedicated to fostering a dialogue around contemporary art, culture and technology. It specialises in artist selection, curation, production, installation and maintenance of art and technology-based artworks and exhibitions. Our team has a decade of experience in the field and is able to advise and collaborate with you to make your project a success. If you would like to add a digital layer or develop art and technology events to complement a permanent display, we can also support you to achieve this.

Our Approach

Increasing Access

We introduce and engage audiences with interactive and immersive art created by artists from around the world.

Audience Development

We foster the transformative effect art and technology can have on audiences of all ages through exhibitions and events.

Collaborative & Inclusive

We've built lasting partnerships with organisations of all sizes to create projects that suit a wide range of needs and build engagement.

Our Projects

Lumen Art Projects currently concentrates on three thematic areas which aim to bring the exciting transformative nature of art and technology to everyone. Our projects can include exhibitions, commissioned artworks, learning programmes, workshops and training as well as seminars and lectures.

Digital Society

Exploring how digital technology forms, changes and defines who we are.

Our Environment

Focusing on how technology shapes the future of our planet and our place in it.

New and Untold Stories

Working with underrepresented groups to find new futures and perspectives on technology.

Commissions

We work with a range of partners to identify artists to and reach new audiences with art and technology. Our experience means we can create an open and inspiring commissioning brief. Using our extensive artist network we can match the right artists to a brief and receive exciting and targeted proposals. Once the brief is agreed, we work with the artist to ensure the commission is delivered on time and to budget.

'Light Up Bashu', Chengdu

'Light Up Bashu' ran for three weeks in November 2018, bringing four large interactive artworks by Lumen artists to an open-air park outside Chengdu, China. Over 50,000 visitors experienced these artworks. Produced in partnership with Here Your Art.

'Level G' at the Barbican Centre

Our partnership with the Barbican Centre's 'Level G' programme in 2018 brought a two-storey public space to life. The bespoke animation intrigued and delighted audiences throughout its seven-month run.

Training

One of the biggest barriers to installing art created with technology is fear of the technology itself, and the constant worry about what can go wrong. Using our 'always on' approach to installation, we can design one or a series of workshops for your curatorial and technical staff on how to manage the latest technology without stress or worry and, most importantly.

Audiences

We are able to offer a range of workshops that engage and inspire audiences to get involved and learn about art and technology. These workshops are hosted by artists and cover a range of media and produce varied outcomes for different age ranges.

Institutional

Specialising in the curation, production, installation and maintenance of art and technology-based exhibitions. Our staff have years of experience in this field and are able to advise or collaborate to make your project a success.
