Katie Schwab’s Together in a Room | thisistomorrow

Katie Schwab’s exhibition ‘Together in a Room’, currently showing at Collective Gallery in Edinburgh, brings together voices and histories spanning over a century through an installation of textiles, video and furniture. The exhibition marks the culmination of Schwab’s participation in Collective Gallery’s ‘Satellites Program’ – an open submission initiative which provides artists with development and mentoring resources. Looking at domestic craft and design in 20th and 21st century buildings, Schwab has installed a space whose bright colours emanate from the glass-fronted exterior of the gallery and out into the panoramic vista of Edinburgh from high on Calton Hill. In doing so, the architecture of her exhibit points to a central theme of the work – that of the ambiguity between the realms of public and private space.
