ABOUT

about george wu

George Wu moved to London to seek her fortune as a graphic designer. A few years later, feeling restless and wanting to broaden her horizons she managed to lure the BBC into awarding her a BBC new music short in 2006 to enable her to make her first video. This first production led to an MA at the Royal College of Art and consequently she was nominated for the Jerwood Moving Image award in 2008.

Upon completion of her MA, George formed the creative agency Household with Sarah Gottlieb, and leapt into the world of installations and workshops. Commissions have included: Arnolfini, The Barbican and The Serpentine, and culminated in a solo show Human Error. Together they have showcased in Tokyo 100%, DMY Berlin and featured at Craft Punk by Design Miami/Fendi Milan.

George works as a director and designer and has been showcased in Shots, Idn and Grafik Magzine. She also founded and co-curates The Poundshop, a bi-annual design exhibition, with past pop-up events created for Somerset House, Mother London and W+K London.
