ARTEMIZIA UNVEILS SWOON GALLERY


ARTEMIZIA’S NEW SWOON GALLERY IS NOW OPEN TO EXHIBIT AND OFFER THE ARTIST’S ARTWORK FOR SALE YEAR-ROUND.


AF is excited to unveil an exciting new project at the Foundation: The Swoon Gallery. 


With the success of Swoon’s solo exhibition at Gallery 818 in December 2023, AF elected to renovate the gallery nearest to the main entrance to display and sell Swoon artwork year-round.  


“Artemizia’s ongoing relationship with Callie is something that we absolutely treasure here at the foundation,” says Sloane Bouchever, Founder and Director of AF. “We couldn’t be happier to now have an entire gallery dedicated to displaying and selling her incredible artwork.”




About Swoon

Caledonia Curry (a.k.a Swoon) is a contemporary artist and filmmaker recognized around the world for her pioneering vision of public artwork. Through intimate portraits, immersive installations and multi-year community-based projects, Curry 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.

The Swoon Gallery marks the artist’s fourth project with AF, which includes her solo exhibition Eudaimonia in December. 


Eudaimonia is what moved us to dedicate a space for Callie’s work year-round,” says Bouchever. “Not only does she represent everything that the museum stands for – social justice and using street art to amplify change – but her work also resonates deeply with our members and visitors at the museum. It couldn’t be a more perfect fit.”


Along with the Swoon Gallery, visitors can enjoy two additional permanent installations by Swoon at the museum: “Sonia Mandala” in the museum gallery and the pasteup of “George” in the Mural Labyrinth.
