Jim Kempner Fine Art


    Swoon (b. 1978) is a contemporary American street artist best known for her illustrative portraiture. Working in a wide-ranging practice that includes installation and performance, her work is often politically motivated. Swoon's large-scale images are printed on recycled newspaper and glued to the sides of urban architecture using wheat paste-an inexpensive and convenient form of mass distribution. Born Caledonia Dance Curry in New London, CT, Swoon moved to New York to attend the Pratt Institute. Her work gained recognition after a solo show at Jeffrey Deitch's SoHo gallery in 2005, quickly attracting the attention of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Her solo show "Submerged Motherlands" at the Brooklyn Museum in 2014 was the museum's first exhibition dedicated to a living street artist. Swoon currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
