Saxelby is currently based between New York and Washington, DC where she is investigating the performance of resistance and reclamation by communities of women, drawing from the 2017 Women's March and the #MeToo virtual movement. The artist is interested in how we gather ourselves to enact the futures we imagine.

2019 Samstag Scholarship

"Georgia Saxelby’s work is highly charged, informed, feminist, inclusive, and relational - inviting participation from women across different cultures, countries, social and political spheres. Her work gives a loud, credible voice to the unrepresented and those without a voice.”

"An urgent curiosity propels Georgia Saxelby to make art of our time … it is the environments she conceptualises and the sheer ambition and scope of these works that distinguish them.”
