Please review our new Courtesy Code and reserve your visit date and time prior to your arrival.

Caledonia Curry, known to her friends as Callie and to the art world as Swoon, has transformed Albright-Knox Northland into an open and meditative environment featuring a number of her large-scale sculptural installations as well as her first stop-motion animation video. Beyond these individual objects, the artist is interested in establishing spaces of empathy with a compassionate eye toward greater understanding and creating positive impact in the lives of her audiences. In Seven Contemplations, the artist infuses often difficult aspects of her personal journey with a spirit of generosity to offer a model of how pushing through the discomfort of challenges may lead toward healing.

This exhibition is organized by Curator of Public Art Aaron Ott.

Admission to Albright-Knox Northland is always Pay What You Wish.

About the Artist

Since achieving acclaim in the early 2000s for her deeply empathetic portraits illicitly wheat-pasted to buildings around New York, Swoon 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 earthquake-resistant structures in Haiti through Konbit Shelter. Connecting all these endeavors, for the artist, is a deep commitment to a spirit of generosity and an understanding of artmaking and sharing as a process of personal and communal healing and working through monumental change.
