Katie Schwab: Sample Book

Katie Schwab: Sample Book is the first institutional publication on the practice of the artist Katie Schwab. Copublished by Vleeshal and Dent-De-Leone, Sample Book provides deep insight into the period between 2020 and 2021 in which the artist created new work, especially for her exhibition small wares at the Vleeshal. The book brings together a selection of essays, an interview, a shape poem and a short story, which together chart how Katie Schwab’s research into Dutch darning samplers as well as processes of repair in textiles and civic architecture came to underpin a dynamic new body of sculptural works.
