An Unorthodox Flow of Images commences with what is known as the first press photograph in Australia and unfurls through historic, press, portraiture, popular and art photography, some in their intended material form and others as reproductions. An unbroken thread connects this line of still and moving images, each tied to those on either side through visual, conceptual, temporal, material or circumstantial links.

J. E. Bray / The Glenrowan Inn after the Kelly Siege 1880
This is a proposition about photography now. Relationships between images are sometimes real, and sometimes promiscuous. Unorthodox brings new contexts to existing artworks whilst celebrating the materiality of real photographs, in real time and critically, honoring the shared democratic experience of the public gallery space.
Curated by Naomi Cass and Pippa Milne.
Presented with Melbourne Festival.
