Light Industry is a new venue for film and electronic art in Brooklyn, New York.

Developed and overseen by Thomas Beard and Ed Halter, the project will begin as a series of weekly events at Industry City in Sunset Park, each organized by a different artist, critic, or curator, including Peggy Ahwesh, Cory Arcangel, Paul Chan, Rebecca Cleman, Jem Cohen, Ben Coonley and Michael Smith, Bradley Eros and Brian Frye, eteam, Kendra Gaeta and Laris Kreslins, David Gatten, Lia Gangitano, Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Nick Hallett, K8 Hardy, William E. Jones, Andrew Lampert, Dennis Lim, Abina Manning, Mark McElhatten, MTAA, Marisa Olson, Jacob Perlin, Seth Price, Jennifer Reeves, P. Adams Sitney, Eddo Stern, and Dan Streible, among others.

Conceptually, Light Industry draws equal inspiration from the long history of alternative art spaces in New York as well its storied tradition of cinematheques and other intrepid film exhibitors. Through a regular program of screenings, performances, and lectures, its goal is to explore new models for the presentation of time-based media. Bringing together the worlds of contemporary art, experimental cinema, new media, documentary film, and the academy (to name only a few), Light Industry looks to foster a complex dialogue amongst a wide range of artists and audiences within the city.
