AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What can drawings reveal about their makers? In 1953 anthropologist Mervyn Meggitt invited Warlpiri men at Hooker Creek to draw with crayons and paper. Two men astounded him with their drawings made 'for the pleasure of drawing'. Six decades later the Warlpiri men's descendants have been introduced to the drawings, triggering memories of dislocation and galvanizing attention to the present day as well as fears and hopes for the future.'

'Discussions, journeys and archival research build a compelling account of the colonial and contemporary circumstances of Warlpiri lives, including the crucial role of images in relationships between Warlpiri people and the dominant society.'

'Remembering the future breaks new ground in writing about Central Australian Aboriginal art and makes a significant contribution to Australian anthropology and the interdisciplinary field of visual studies.' (Source: Publisher's website)
