Texte intégral

So, I’m very glad to present Fred Myers, the discussant of the session, and of a very dear friend, I think we’ve known each other for quite a long time. And of course, Fred Myers is known for the book, the most quoted in Aboriginal studies, as Nick Peterson, who opened the conference was reminding us. The book is also really worth regarding Pintupi country, Pintupi self, but also for his extensive work regarding Aboriginal art, and he was in fact, and I will say the conference, and I want here to thank all my collegues from the Musée du Quai Branly who had the initiative of this conference, was prompted by the fact that there was this exhibition on Papunya Tula paintings, and Fred was in fact doing his fieldwork when the movement started, and I think you were also witness Françoise Dussart, of the first exhibition held in New York the Asian Society, so both of you were then present. So I’m very glad that you are the discussants of this session, and I will just now give you the possibility of speaking with your paper.
