Visiting Artist’s Talk – Georgina Starr

For this week's Visiting Artist's Talk (VAT), we welcome Georgina Starr.

Georgina Starr is a British artist best known for her video, sound and performance works.

Starr emerged in the early 1990s with a series of complex works exploring fragile emotional narratives through writing and moving image. Using female identity, memory, film history and fiction she creates multi-layered theatrical events and installations.

Starr has exhibited widely over the last 25 years in galleries and museums both in the UK and internationally, from Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney and Tate Britain to Kunsthalle Zurich and Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Recent exhibitions include the solo show I, Cave at mima in 2015, a sculpture and performance commission Moment Memory Monument presented at Palazzo Reale in Milan in 2017, a mid-career survey Hello. Come here. I want you. at Frac Franche-Comté and a new performance commission Androgynous Egg for Frieze Projects in 2017.

The Visiting Artist’s Talk (VAT) series hosts talks by an exciting range of arts practitioners from around the world every Monday afternoon from 14:00 to 15:30 during teaching weeks.

All of our talks are compulsory for our Fine Art students but open to anyone else who would like to join us.

For more information, email Aleana Turner.
