Interview with Georgie Pope | EP26 Subtext & Discourse

June 22, 2020

Georgina Pope is a Berlin based curator who started her career working at commercial galleries and project spaces in Sydney, Australia. She is currently a curator for Independent Collectors, a digital platform for art collectors and the largest non-commercial archive of private collections worldwide. Georgie also works as art mediator at The Bunker Berlin, a heritage listed World War II air-raid shelter and home to Karen and Christian Boros private collection of contemporary art.

Completing the Curatorial Practice and Contemporary Arts course at the School for Curatorial Studies Venice in 2018 consolidated her previous art world experiences. This enabled her individual curatorial interests to become more focused on activation of art works; whether through education, presentation or other forms of audience engagement. Leading to an increased involvement with preformative art and the opportunities this experiential medium provides - not least of which includes the increased interest from art collectors who wish to support and be more involved in this recently institutionalised part of the art world and relative newcomer to the art market.
