Time Suspended, curated by Carrie Cunningham
Touched by the circumstances of the pandemic, Carrie Cunnigham reached out to her women artist friends and found that most of them had produced very strong and emotional work during these times in isolation.
’Time, Suspended’, references the extraordinary moment we have collectively experienced in 2020. While all have been touched by the year’s events differently, for some the detachment from the ‘everyday’ has brought about a free flow of creativity and a radical re-thinking of ourselves and our place in the world – a thesis powerfully captured by all the work on display. Immediate, though highly contemplative, Renate Aller’s series ‘side walk’ –has the artist sitting 6 feet apart from her subjects whilst they converse, perform and connect.
This project is in the collection of the New-York Historical Society Museum and will be accompanied by a book.
Trained as a restorer of paintings and antiquities in Florence, Carrie Cunnigham developed a deep understanding of art in the context of place and time.
For more than a decade she worked as an art adviser to private collectors as well as prestigious corporations by placing artists’ works and site-specific installations into the large spaces for clients.
As a women-led, women-focused show, a portion of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to Women for Women International – a charity which supports women survivors of war.
