Caledonia “Swoon” Curry discusses her new print/sculpture installation “Thalassa” at the New Orleans Museum of Art, which she describes as a “beautiful, grotesque octopus jellyfish woman.” As she speaks, Curry credits Jay Pennington and Delaney Martin, the directors of New Orleans Airlift, and NOMA curator of contemporary art Miranda Lash for inspiring and helping produce the project. The “Thalassa” portrait is of Naima Penniman, half of the performance art duo Alixa and Naima.
