a temporary wriggle

This, until recently, was the radiant future.
It was always unstable, contradictory and fictive. It was impossible. Now it is a temporary wriggle. Graspable vagueness. Presentation, un-presentation, presentation. Stages, scenes, plinths. Travelling diagonal routes, embracing wrong turns and drifting. On purpose, knowing the thing desired will never fully arrive.
Georgie Meagher is a curator, writer and artist who works across artistic disciplines. She was recently appointed Artistic Director of Next Wave, joining the organisation from a role at the MCA Australia as Public Engagement Manager, where she has expanded the institution’s public programs and community engagement. Previously, Georgie also developed experimental programs and events for Sydney’s Performance Space, such as Clubhouse, which combined socially-inclusive art projects, workshops and seminars. She was a Director of Firstdraft in 2010-11, and as a performance artist, Georgie has presented her work internationally at ANTI Festival in Finland and You and Your Work Festival at Arnolfini, Bristol. She was the recipient of a Cultural Leadership grant from Australia Council for the Arts in 2012, and holds a Masters in Creative Arts (Performance) from the University of Wollongong, NSW.
