is a Zurich-based creative consultant and curator, with over 10 years experience within the international art world. Georgina was art director of the publication DU and, following a short period at both Christie’s and Sotheby’s, began working for internationally active art galleries. Committed to and immensely passionate about working closely with artists, she later moved away from the market to help curate Manifesta 11, the The European Nomadic Biennial, for which she was predominantly responsible for the artists and “New Commissions”. She is since finding novel, cross-disciplinary environments for art and creative ideas, having helped curate exhibitions, commissioned artworks and created arts-related strategies for brands and companies.
Georgina holds an MA in both “Fine Arts” and “Contemporary Art History & History of the Art Market” from London (Central Saint Martins) and New York (Christie’s Education) respectively and is currently based in Zurich, Switzerland.
It is every artist’s vision that she puts first in her practice, at the core of which lies a deep interest in the intersection between art and the worlds of design, technology, architecture, literature, music and even sports. She tries to combine her past experiences, network and passion to explore and thus design new settings and ways of mediation. Having had the pleasure of working with numerous engaging and passionately committed artists, her driving force is helping them and creatives at large transform their visions into reality and considering the right – or unexpected – environment for their ideas, while building relevant bridges for the public and clients alike.
Georgina Casparis is initiator and currently running the temporary art and creative project Hochhaus.be
