The Still in My Mind: Gurindji location, experience and visuality exhibition was showcased at the South Australian Museum as a part of Tarnanthi: Festival of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts 2019
Brenda Croft’s work as an artist, curator and creative-led researcher - combining visual representation and theoretical methods - highlights complex concepts of community and connection to Country, and challenges the context of a single geographical location denoting ‘home.’
The exhibition can be interpreted through three broad themes: Art and identity; Art and social history; Art and storytelling encompassing Aboriginal activism, Stolen Generations, unwritten histories and exhibitions as storytelling.
