AgX Film Collective

Embedded within the emulsion of photochemical film, silver halides are crystals composed of silver and one of the halogens (Br, Cl or I), often given the notation AgX.

AgX is a Boston-area collective of artists who share resources, equipment, camaraderie and knowledge with a focus on the creation and appreciation of the moving image arts. Part of an international circle of artist-run film labs, AgX is open to collaboration and experimentation with other entities while it cultivates and supports a diverse community of filmmakers, photographers and interdisciplinary artists. Sensitive to the particular alchemy of silver reacting with light, our fluid composition freely bonds with both still images and moving, the many media that modulate light and sound, and the infinite spectrum of interactions possible.
