Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin generously invited Tandem Press curators J Myszka Lewis and Sona Pastel-Daneshgar to guest curate exhibitions in two of their exhibition spaces. Swoon: Tender is featured in their intimate viewing space called The Vitrine for the Fall 2021 season.
An artist known for her large-scale installations, wheat-pasted block prints, and cut paper assemblages, Swoon consistently creates compelling portraits and earnest expressions of what it means to be human. Treating the beautiful as sublime, she explores feelings of sincerity, empathy, and healing as it relates to people, their communities, and their built environment. Swoon: Tender presents a group of emotive portraits that depict individuals in quiet moments of care and connection, reaching out to each other and to the viewer.
