About the exhibition

Suspended Moment brings together new works by artists Frances Barrett, Giselle Stanborough and Sally Rees – the three recipients of Suspended Moment: The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship. Established in the name of Italian-born, Australian artist Katthy Cavaliere (1972–2012), the fellowship was a one-off opportunity that provided support to Australian women artists working at the nexus of performance and installation.

Curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Suspended Moment contextualises key works by Cavaliere alongside the fellowship artists who benefited from her enduring legacy.

The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship

Suspended Moment: The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship is a major new artist fellowship established in the name of Italian-born, Australian artist Katthy Cavaliere (1972-2012). Female-identifying artists or artist collectives were invited to submit proposals for an ambitious new project focused at the intersection of installation and performance art practice.

In April 2019, artists Frances Barrett (NSW), Giselle Stanborough (NSW) and Sally Rees (TAS) were announced as the recipients of the Fellowship. Each artist received $100,000 to realise an ambitious new work that are being presented in three individual exhibitions at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) (Frances Barrett), Carriageworks (Giselle Stanborough) and Mona (Sally Rees) in 2020 – 2021.

The selection panel comprised leadership and curatorial representatives from the presenting institutions, including Daniel Mudie Cunningham (Director of Programs, Carriageworks), David Walsh (Founder, Mona) and Nicole Durling (Co-Director of Exhibitions and Collections and Senior Curator, Mona), Max Delany (Director, ACCA) and Annika Kristensen (Senior Curator, ACCA).
