Georgina Johnson is a young polymath and artist, working between; Curation, Film Direction, Creative Direction, Production and public programming.

She is known for swinging between between mediums fluidly, moulding and applying her vision through sound, film, photography, installation and other means; most notably completing artist commissions for The Photographers’ Gallery and Now Gallery (2017-2018). Poetry and prose feature largely in her printed works, drawing from her personal experience as means to explore memory and present contemporary ideals in an informal manner; sharing new layers of understanding of the self and the Diaspora and exploring language in it’s many forms, through observatory means and socio-political ideologies.

A platform focused on collaboration and curation, disrupting arts education and presenting new ways of engaging with contemporary artists and their work.
