Goliath is currently studying an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London and has recently formed the AGBA art collective. In 2017, she was awarded Arts Council England Grants for the Arts for the 18-month project Recycle, Rewind and Animate. Recent group exhibitions and screenings include Spring Cleaning, G04 Crown Place Apartments, London, 2018; Between Democracies 1989-2014: Memory and Commemoration, Bratislava, 2017; Approaches to Fluidity, The Koppel Project Hive, London, 2017 and The Explorer Series: Invisible City Symphonies, various locations around London, 2016.
