  Maggie Diaz arrived in Melbourne in 1961 and established herself as a leading commercial photographer and one of Australia’s few women photographers. Her first photographs were shot in 1950s Chicago where she walked on both sides of the street – capturing haunting scenes at the Lower North Centre housing project alongside images of millionaires as the resident photographer at the elite Tavern Club.

The online exhibition ‘After Dark’ features a selection of iconic images of jazz and blues musicians who enlivened Chicago’s nightlife, and furthermore of African Americans who took the stage and shared their art in pre-Civil rights movement America.

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 19 July 2018

Exhibition closes: 11 August 2018
