Georgina Maxim
Lives & Works in Harare, Zimbabwe
Georgina Maxim has made significant contributions to the art world. Co-founding Village Unhu in 2012, an artist-run space providing studios, exhibitions, workshops, and residencies, she has fostered opportunities for young and professional artists. Alongside her curatorial work, Maxim has delved into textile art, utilizing embroidery, sewing, and weaving techniques to deconstruct and transform second-hand clothes. Her artwork transcends categorization, serving as a medium for memory and evoking experiences associated with the garments.  Maxim's talent has gained international recognition, with exhibitions in Zimbabwe, Dubai, Paris, and Salvador de Bahia. She was also nominated for the Henrike Grohs Award in 2018 and participated in the Zimbabwean pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale. Continuing her artistic journey, Maxim presented her work at the Bargoin Museum, FRAC Nouvelle-Aquitaine MÉCA, MuCAT, and Somerset House. Georgina Maxim will be presented by Gallery Nosco.
