Product Description

With eloquence and insight she reveals the frameworks of interpretation that have contained the drawings, exposing the limits of our understanding, and breaking open these frameworks to the activities and lives of real people, past and present.  – Professor Fred Myers, Silver Professor of Anthropology, New York University

This landmark book breaks new ground in exploring Aboriginal visual culture and will serve as an important touchstone in years to come. – Professor Jane Lydon, Wesfarmers Chair of Australian History, University of Western Australia

[I]t marks a generational change and a new approach to scholarship. – Dr Luke Taylor, Adjunct Professor, Australian National University


Two decades before the art movement at Papunya, in 1953, anthropologist Mervyn Meggitt invited Warlpiri men at Hooker Creek to draw with crayons and paper. Six decades later the Warlpiri men’s descendants have been introduced to the drawings. 

In Remembering the Future, Hinkson builds a compelling account of the colonial and contemporary circumstances of Warlpiri lives, and the crucial role of images in relationships between Warlpiri people and the dominant society.

Hinkson breaks new ground in writing about Central Australian Aboriginal art, Australian anthropology and the interdisciplinary field of visual studies.
