YOKE is a dynamic and diverse exhibition that celebrates the boundless creativity of AUB’s technical teams.

AUB’s technicians are artists and designers who expertly navigate the worlds of painting, sculpture, digital art, photography, ceramics, and more. They're skilled specialists in both traditional crafts and expert pioneers of the ever-changing technologies of today. The works highlight their innovative approaches to art and their ability to push the boundaries of their chosen mediums.

Renowned globally as a professional arts university, AUB is dedicated to turning creativity into careers. Our culture of making, performing, and shaping cultures is at the heart of everything we do. Our values speak of collaboration, connectedness and innovative practice, underpinned by a passion for our academic disciplines and extensive partnerships with industry, professions and communities. The practitioners exhibiting in this show are at the forefront of this work, and they support students at the University across all courses and support areas. Technicians work in the studios with the students, delivering demonstrations and facilitating learning, as well as supporting them in their creative practice and developing their confidence as they progress through each year of their course.

Not only does this exhibition give a glimpse into the technicians’ practice when outside the education setting, it emphasises how key our technical teams are in fostering an environment of learning, collaboration and inspiration.
