Before moving back to London a year ago, Lucy spent four years working in visual arts organisations in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Starting with a position at Edinburgh Art Festival as the Events Curator and ending with a stint at Street Level Photoworks, a leading Scottish gallery and production resource specialising in the support and exhibition of photographic work. She also had a significant period as the Programme Manager at Scotland’s only Chinese Arts and Cultural Centre, where Lucy focused on exhibiting a range of contemporary photographic and film practices from China. ‘I’m delighted to be invited to work for Autograph ABP, having admired the organisation from afar for a number of years. I particularly looked to Autograph ABP’s model of working whilst at the Chinese Arts and Cultural Centre, which was fairly marginalised by the ‘mainstream’ arts community due to its focus on Chinese artists. Autograph ABP stood out to me as a model of excellent practice in respect to how it dealt with issues of diversity, cultural politics and engaged with the wider public’.
