Born Caledonia Curry in 1977, the artist known as Swoon is getting her first major survey exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center. Like Shepard Fairey and Banksy, Swoon has gained notoriety for her striking and surprising street art.
But her work also includes site-specific installations, like the sets she created specifically for the Cincinnati Ballet earlier this year, which will be featured in this exhibit. If you still consider street art “graffiti,” this show will cast doubt on that narrow definition.
