About the Instructor

Georgie Friedman received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in conjunction with Tufts University (‘08) and her BA from University of California, Santa Cruz (‘96). Georgie's exhibition at the MFA, "Fragments of Antarctica," features work she created as a result from her SMFA at Tufts Traveling Fellowship to Antarctica, on view through September 15, 2019. She has also exhibited at the Geneva International Film Festival, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Peabody Essex Museum, among others. She teaches a variety of photography and video-based classes at several local institutions, including Boston College and MassArt, and she was one of the first Artists-in-Residence with the City of Boston. Her photographic works and experiential video installations explore the relationship between uncontrollable natural phenomena and our natural, built, and digital environments.
