Georgina Watson (b. 1997) is an artist, writer and facilitator from Buxton, Derbyshire, currently living and working in London. Through her writing, Georgina aims to explore her own interpretations of the rural landscape, often through a lens of difference in time and knowledge, family, memory and place. She also has a strong interest in collective and collaborative practices, which is reflected both in her own art practice and dissertation Letters Between the Rural and the Urban: Exploring Rural Condition, Collective Ethos and Socially-Engaged Art Practice. During her time at the RCA, Georgina has participated in multiple group exhibitions, published writing, and led and taken part in various workshops and collaborative projects.
Georgina completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Lancaster Institute for Contemporary Art (LICA, Lancaster University) in 2018. Selected exhibitions include Everything Forever (online, March 2021), Part of the Community (online, February-March 2021) and Invisible Borders (Berlin and online, February 2021). Georgina has also published writing in The Pluralist (April 2021), New Critique (March 2021) and Mercurial Mist (March 2021). In February 2021, she facilitated The Place Exchange for AcrossRCA and delivered The Places We Miss for No Jobs in the Arts Fringe/UKNA Leicester City Takeover.
