DANIEL MUDIE CUNNINGHAM

DANIEL MUDIE CUNNINGHAM

Originally a sketch in artist Daniel Mudie Cunningham’s 1995 art school journal, then reimagined and rendered as a neon artwork almost 30 years later, this piece is an ode to his youth and what it was like to grow up queer in Australia. The play on words, adapted from the adage “on a clear day you can see forever” (also the title for a 1970 film starring Barbra Streisand), this piece comes from Cunningham’s survey exhibition Are You There?, originally presented at Wollongong Art Gallery in 2023 and now taking to the streets of Southport for BIG CITY LIGHTS*.
