Creative Lives: Katie Schwab and James Hutchinson

Katie Schwab: Together in a Room, 2016 Collective, Edinburgh

Room 1, The Gateway City Campus

A series of lectures about how artists work, live and thrive in the arts and creative industries.

Katie Schwab
Within her practice Katie is interested in the politics of constructing and inhabiting living space: how the building, designing, furnishing and upkeep of rooms can reveal the values, politics and ethics of the people that live there. She has a particular interest in communal living and working situations, and how an individual voice might be found within the context of a shared living space or workshop: this is explored in her work through reference to 19th, 20th and 21st century domestic design, craft processes and interpersonal relationships.

James Hutchinson

He runs a studio in Whitley Bay with on-going drawing, painting, digital sculpture, and photographic projects.

Free and open to all.
