Caledonia Curry (b. 1977), who exhibits her artwork under the name SWOON, is a visual artist and printmaker who has spent her career exploring the relationship between people and their built environments.
Her early interventions in the urban cityscape took the form of wheat-pasting portraits to the walls of cities around the world, and her public practice has expanded to employ art to rebuild communities and humanize today’s most pressing social and environmental issues. She co-founded Konbit Shelter in 2010, an artist’s response to the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti that same year. Other community-based endeavors include collaborating on the construction of musical architecture in New Orleans, and a neighborhood revitalization project in North Braddock, PA.
Created in conjunction with Curry’s first major survey exhibition, The Canyon: 1999 – 2017, at the CAC Cincinatti in 2017, Edine is part of a portrait series based on the artist’s volunteer work in the village of Cormiers, Haiti.
Curry earned a BA at the Pratt Institute, New York in 2002. Her work has been collected and shown internationally at galleries and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Brooklyn Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Detroit Institute of the Arts, the Skissernas Museum in Lund, Sweden, and the São Paulo Museum of Art, Brazil.
