Georgina Johnson is a polymath by nature - an artist, writer, designer and curator, embodying the spirit and ethos of an earthworker and futurist, dedicated to transforming our creative ecologies. Since graduating with first class honours from LCF in Womenswear and Pattern Cutting, Johnson has gone on to engage with disciplines that reach far beyond the practice in which she began. She has completed artist commissions for The Photographers’ Gallery, Now Gallery and The V&A (2017-2018); exhibited with The National Museums Scotland (2019); performed at Cubitt Gallery (2019); and was nominated by The British Council and The Design Museum as one of 10x10 2018. As a commentator and thinker, she has contributed to panels with SHOWstudio, Fashion Revolution and Amsterdam Art Weekend and has been profiled by an array of publications including Creative Review, Garage Magazine, i-D and British Vogue. Johnson is a singular and rare voice in our creative industries for the way she refuses the status quo, prioritising shifting the paradigm over surface level or individual progress alone. She is committed to the collective, evidenced in how she uses her personal successes to open up collaboration. By bringing her embodied experiences to the table, she cultivates tools for examining our culture and mapping out healed futures hand in hand with a constellation of innovative individuals. Her work is testament to the importance of her authentic voice for our hyphenated and global experience.
Navigating through affective ecosystems and sites of hope, Tamar Clarke-Brown is a London based artist, writer and curator. Guided by an early introduction to archives, Tamar is concerned with projects that centre around sustainability, care and futurity. Her interdisciplinary work focuses on experimental futurisms, intimate choreographies and diasporic practices. Tamar has worked with institutions including Serpentine Galleries, Autograph ABP and NTS Radio and presented at the ICA, South London Gallery, Tate Galleries, Somerset House, Kadist (Paris), Bard Berlin and more. Tamar contributes her writing to platforms including i-D, AQNB, gal-dem and independent publications.
In 2017 Johnson founded London based arts and curation platform The Laundry as a vehicle from which to support voices in her immediate community and beyond. The platform in its current stage is expanding internationally; with the socio-political at its core, holding the intention of facilitating, nurturing and connecting the dots between a growing network of like minded local and global artists, creative practitioners and thinkers. The vast constellation of innovative individuals that Georgina has collaborated with are testament to the impact of her authentic voice for our hyphenated and global experience.
