This will be the first major publication charting the development of Kate Davis' practice from 2004 – 2010, culminating in her current two-person exhibition project with Faith Wilding, titled 'The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here?' and commissioned for Glasgow International by the CCA, Glasgow. Over this six year period Davis’s work has evolved through specific bodies of work, creating carefully composed environments, which incorporate drawings, collages, sculptural objects and most recently films. These installations often pose questions, or seek to manifest Davis’s responses to the work and practice of other artists, whilst commenting on the ever-shifting political, sociological and cultural environments in which art is produced.
The publication features a newly commissioned essay by Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, a conversation between Kate Davis and Jason. E Bowman and is designed by Robert Dallas Gray.

'Role Forward' is jointly published by the CCA, Glasgow and Sorcha Dallas.
Supported by The Scottish Arts Council and The Hope Scott Trust.
