Swoon: Seven Contemplations

Through January 10, 2021

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. The artist is interested in establishing spaces of empathy with a compassionate eye toward greater understanding and creating a positive impact in the lives of her audiences.
