Georgia MacGuire

Georgia MacGuire is an Wurundjeri artist based in the Central Goldfields of Victoria. Having grown up in Canberra in the 1980s, Georgia developed a strong interest in art, politics and human rights. This interest led to a 15-year career in the community sector, where she traveled Australia to work with women, young people, children and families. In 2000, Georgia moved to Melbourne to rekindle a sense of belonging to the places her mother and grandmother had been raised and lived. In reconnecting with her family’s origins, Georgia decided to redirect her humanitarian passion into a full-time art practice. Georgia completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Deakin University) in 2014. Since completing her degree, Georgia has had solo and group shows, and was recently featured in the 2015 Indigenous edition of Artlink Magazine. In 2015 Georgia traveled to the USA and Canada to exhibit and work with other feminist art professionals. Her multi-disciplinary practice is derivative of a post colonial feminist perspective, and is driven by a desire to communicate her experiences of the human condition. Georgia is currently working with other artists on developing an Indigenous Women’s art network called Ngardang Girri Kalat Mimini (Mother, Aunty, Sister, Daughter).
