Georgina Lewis holds a MFA from Bard College as well as undergraduate degrees from Franklin and Marshall College and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. She is the recipient of grants and residencies from the Millay Colony, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, VCCA France, and the Council for the Arts at MIT. In 2012-13, she was a fellow at Harvard University’s metaLAB. Growing up in Georgina splits her time between Pennsylvania and Nova Scotia (Canada). She works in an academic research library.

Georgina is an artist, writer, and curator with an immense fondness for information. She employs text, sound, photography, and sculpture to create work that probes the juncture of the human and the machine; nature and the built environment. She is concurrently engaged in several projects focusing on language, technology, and classification: exploring nostalgia, data, and the common need for a place of fantasy. The question central to her current practice is: “what is/can be a book?”

Georgina has recently became fascinated with wallpaper, exploring it both as an anchoring device for discrete objects, and images and as a mean of surveying the mechanics of opulence. “The shut palace of the queen, 24 hour poem barrage”, the outgrowth of a night of insomnia, is her newest project.
