Georgia's 'We Are Made of Lines' exhibition presents a series of linear works which chart the journeys of people around Melbourne city, accompanied by written descriptions that correspond with the individual movements. Her creative work brings line, story telling, portraiture and mapping together to explore the thoughts and memories that make up the journeys taken by the individual, how each of us recall those journeys as we navigate space and time. This PS50 exhibition is another reason why Melbourne is the best place for art in Australia.
Georgia's 'We Are Made of Lines' exhibition will be officially opened on 12 August with drinks and finger food between 4.30pm to 6pm at the PS50 Arts Project Space in Carlton
