Swoon

American, born 1977

Since achieving acclaim in the early 2000s for her large-scale, deeply empathetic portraits illicitly wheat-pasted to buildings around New York, Swoon (born Caledonia Curry) has expanded to creating sculptures, collages, paintings, and installations for museum and gallery spaces as well as participatory social projects, including working with residents of Braddock, Pennsylvania, on a series of community revitalization and job creation initiatives and developing models for earthquake-resistant structures in Haiti through Konbit Shelter.
