We are excited to announce Phoebe Banks has joined the LUX Scotland team as our Project Assistant for the Aberdeen Programme. Phoebe (she/​her) will be with us from November – March 2023 as part of the Aberdeen Programme. She will support a programme of professional development activity for early-career artists and curators in Aberdeen including writing and programming workshops, as well as broader public screenings and networking events.

Phoebe is an artist based in Aberdeen and graduated with a BA Hons in Contemporary Art in 2018. Since then she has been involved in artist-led projects and exhibitions and is currently one half of artist duo CUSP, and a founding member of Tactics for Togetherness. Her practice often intersects sculpture and video, using playful approaches, humour and over-exaggerating explorations of small ideas.

Supported by Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding, the Aberdeen programme continues our previous work to support, develop and promote artists’ moving image practices across Scotland, and builds on our previous work in the Aberdeen area, which began in 2018.
