SWOON STUDIO SELECTIONS
Caledonia Curry, known to the art world as Swoon, is a contemporary artist and filmmaker recognized around the world for her pioneering vision of public artwork, Through intimate portraits, immersive installation and multi-year community based projects, she has spent over 20 years exploring the depths of human complexity by mobilizing her artwork to fundamentally re-envision the communities we live in toward a more just and equitable world. She is best known as one of the first women Street Artists to gain international recognition in a male-dominated field, pushing the conceptual limits of the genre and paving the way for a generation of women Street Artists.
Her recent work has been focused on the relationship of trauma and addiction. Through community partnerships that center compassion and the transformative power of art, Curry draws on her personal history growing up in an opioid addicted family as a catalyst for connection and healing. Over the past 10 years, she has founded and developed collaborative multi-year projects that address crises ranging from natural disasters to the opioid epidemic in Braddock and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Komye, Haiti.
She is currently developing a full length narrative movie which will bring together drawing, immersive installation, stop motion animation and her collaborative work, with the traditions of storytelling through film.
