Georgia Dickie

Georgia Dickie (b.1989, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) makes sculptural work out of found objects that she collects in her studio. Her process of reassembling these materials into new arrangements is based on a logic of eschewing and rebalancing their assigned functions. By staging these intricate assemblages, she not only reveals the inherent limitations of material value and meaning, but subverts the ways we are conditioned to see the world in a capitalist, essentializing society, and points towards potentials that emerge from environmental consciousness.

Georgia Dickie earned her BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design University in 2011. She was one of the recipients of the 2020 Sobey Art Award, and the 2014 recipient of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts Artist Prize. She has participated in solo and group exhibitions internationally including Soft Opening, London; Fragment Gallery, Moscow; Oakville Galleries, Oakville; Rolando Anselmi, Berlin; Jeffrey Stark, New York; Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Springsteen Gallery, Baltimore; Art Museum of U of T, The Power Plant, Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Cooper Cole, Toronto. In February 2015, she was the Canada Council for the Arts artist in residence at Acme Studios in London, UK. Georgia Dickie currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
