ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
An Unorthodox Flow of Images
Through Nov 11, 2017 / CCP

 

 

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. W. Lindt / Body of Joe Byrne

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.

Among the nearly 150 entries represented include NASA images, National Geographic, and photographic legends such as Walker Evans and William Eggleston.

Curated by Naomi Cass and Pippa Milne.
Presented with Melbourne Festival.

 

Michael Cook / Mother – Pram 2016

Clare Rae / Law Library 2016
