An exhibition that explores the historic Wave Hill station walk-off that sparked the national Indigenous land rights movement more than 50 years ago has opened at the Charles Darwin University art gallery in the Northern Territory.

The exhibition is curated by Gurindji/Malngin artist Brenda Croft and is based on her doctoral research over the past seven years.

“The subject of the exhibition marks a significant moment in the history of Indigenous activism in Australia that paved the way for a number of important events that contributed to greater recognition and empowerment,” Croft said in a university statement.
