‘that land … I still got it on my mind’

Inspired by the words of revered Indigenous leader and Gurindji elder Vincent Lingiari, Still in my mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality is a national touring exhibition reflecting on events preceding and following the Walk-Off at Wave Hill cattle station in protest over poor wages and living conditions.

Exploring notions of home, community and country connected to the Walk-Off, Still in my mind is curated by renowned Indigenous artist, curator and researcher Brenda L. Croft, in collaboration with the Kalkaringi community. Lingiari’s statement is the exhibitions touchstone, with the story retold from diverse yet interlinked Indigenous perspectives through photographs, an experimental video installation, newly commissioned history paintings, contemporary and historical prints and drawings, textiles and found objects, digital platforms and archives.

Still in my mind is a richly diverse exhibition that enables audiences to explore events of historical and cultural significance to all Australians. The exhibition also presents a multi-layered picture telling the story of the Gurindji people and those part of the diaspora through interwoven Indigenous standpoints.
