    What does it mean to build a ‘Scottish’ collection of artists’ moving image? What should such a collection comprise and what functions should it fulfil? What might be distinctive about the tradition and culture of artists’ moving image in Scotland? How might a collection encompass a history of this work?

    This event, which marked the launch of the LUX Scotland Collection project, sought to explore these questions through a panel discussion and screening programme entitled Five Propositions, in which five individuals working in different capacities across the visual arts and moving image sectors in Scotland were invited to make a personal proposition for a work that should be included in the collection.

    Panellists included: Julie-Ann Delaney (Curator, Scottish National Galleries of Modern Art), William Fowler (Curator of Artists’ Moving Image, BFI National Archive), Adam Lockhart (Archivist, Visual Research Centre, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design), Francis McKee (Director, CCA Glasgow) and Cloudberry MacLean (Co-founder, Curator, GLITCH Film Festival). The panel was chaired by writer and academic researcher, Dr Sarah Neely (University of Stirling).
