    Swoon and Tennessee Jane Watson – Portrait of Silvia Elena, 2008.
    “Honeyspace’s third show is called ‘Portrait of Silvia Elena,’ and is a memorial to 17-year-old Silvia Elena Rivera Morales, who was killed in 1995 – one of the first victims of the unsolved femicides taking place in Juarez, Mexico over the past 10 years. The installation is a collaborative project by Swoon, a New York artist, famous for placing her wheatpaste cutouts on the streets of New York as well as showing them at MoMa, Brooklyn Museum and Deitch Projects, and Tennessee Jane Watson, a documentarian and social activist.”
