Sally Rees: Crone
A flock of crones will descend on Mona in June 2021 as part of Crone, by Hobart-based artist Sally Rees. This new exhibition features a body of work centred around the folkloric character of the ‘crone’, through which Rees challenges the perceived invisibility of ageing women in society. She seeks to redefine the female elder as a powerful, wise and transgressive figure. Curated by Nicole Durling. The exhibition was commissioned by Mona, as part of Suspended Moment: The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship, made possible with funds from the Estate of Katthy Cavaliere in partnership with Carriageworks and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA).
