EXHIBITIONS / ARE YOU THERE? Daniel Mudie Cunnigham Curated by James Gatt

​30 June - 10 September

Gallery 1

Official opening Saturday 1 July at 1.30pm

Are you there? surveys the work of Australian artist, curator and writer Daniel Mudie Cunningham. Focusing on Cunningham’s artistic output, the exhibition tracks thirty years of practice bringing together videos, photographs and previously unexhibited archival material from 1993 to 2023, including the latest iteration of his notable serial work Proud Mary (2007, 2012, 2017, 2022). 

The exhibition observes Cunningham’s lifelong practice of self-invention, documentation and memorialisation. Employing impersonation, re-enactment and drag to grasp psychological and socio-political dimensions of queer identity, his deeply personal body of work publicises lived experiences of love, loss and becoming.
