Georgina Johnson is a polymath, an earthworker and a futurist, driven by curiosity, self-making and care centred ideologies that she embeds in her engagement with disciplines that reach far beyond the fashion industry in which she began. Since graduating with a 1st class honours from LCF in Womenswear and Pattern Cutting (2016), Johnson has simultaneously maintained an adamant set of values (n.b community focused, challenging status quo’s, the creation of space for peripheral experiences) whilst finding an assertive voice in the languages of art and design, curation, art direction, filmmaking and production. Johnson has completed artist commissions for The Photographers’ Gallery and Now Gallery (2017-2018) and exhibited with The National Museums Scotland (2019); underscoring why The British Council and The Design Museum voted her as one of 10x10 2018 - a nomination of the most exciting emerging creatives operating within the creative industries.
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.
