Artist Katie Schwab and families worked together to explore different forms of life writing, using colour, shape and language to express and abstract their everyday experiences.
Families sat down at a typewriter to compose letters, sharing personal stories of sights, sounds and journeys. Inspired by the windows of the Education Studio, families played with the rhythm of abstracted punctuation marks and shift shapes on the walls and lawn, using coloured vinyl inspired by the geometric forms of Schwab’s tapestries.
This event ran in parallel to Etel Adnan’s exhibition The Weight of the World and was a free drop-in event, open to people of all ages.
