A suite of $100k grants have been awarded to three female-identifying artists, in honour of Italian-born, Australian artist Katthy Cavaliere (1972-2012).

Cavaliere's lifelong project was to pack, store and transport the wreckage of her personal possessions, and transform it into art—a private life made public, where readymade objects acquire an aura of love and trauma, and comprise a portrait of the artist herself.

Suspended Moment is made possible by the Estate of Katthy Cavaliere in partnership with Carriageworks, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, and Mona.

The winners will present an exhibition in 2020.

They are Frances Barrett (ACCA), Giselle Stanborough (Carriageworks), and Sally Rees here at Mona. Rees will present CRONE: a series of animations, prints, and actions responding to the perceived invisibility of ageing women in society.
