Gio Swaby's Textile Portraits Are a Love Letter to Black Womanhood

The 30-year-old Bahamian multimedia textile artist took the art world by storm after her debut exhibition in New York City's Claire Oliver Gallery, "Both Sides of the Sun," sold out before it officially opened in April 2021. Since then, she has participated in two major art fairs (1-54 Art Fair in London and Untitled Art in Miami), and at least six major national museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, have added her work to their collections.
