Opening at CDU Art Gallery in November, Still in my mind: Gurindji experience, location and visuality is an exhibition that considers the ongoing impact of the famous 1966 ‘Wave Hill Walk-off’, an event that saw 200 Aboriginal stockmen, station workers, and their families follow the lead of Gurindji elder Vincent Lingiari and strike in protest over poor wages and conditions.    
A powerful act of self-determination, the Wave Hill Walk-off was to have far-reaching social and political repercussions in Australia and is considered pivotal to the Aboriginal land-rights movement.

Curated by Gurindji descendant and participating artist Brenda L. Croft, Still in my mind… features a diverse range of media including photographs, digital platforms and archives, Gurindji history paintings, contemporary and historical prints and drawings, and an experimental video installation. 
A 148 page catalogue will accompany the exhibition, and is available for purchase.

Still in My Mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality is an Artback NT Touring Exhibition curated by Brenda L Croft, produced in association with UNSW Galleries, UQ Art Museum and Karungkarni Art and Culture Aboriginal Corporation, with support from Visions of Australia, Australian Research Council Discovery Indigenous Award, National Institute for Experimental Arts, ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language and the Berndt research Foundation.
