Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this event may contain the images of people who have passed away.   

First Nations artist Richard Bell proclaims himself an ‘activist masquerading as an artist’.  

 

His confrontational work and attitudes have stirred the Australian art world while being lauded internationally. Schooled in Redfern’s rough-and-tumble politics, he defies the institutions of colonisation in Australia and asserts the rights of First Nations people everywhere.  

 

His scorching manifesto, Bell’s Theorem, has profoundly challenged the Australian art world, labelling the Aboriginal Art industry as ‘white thing’ defined by colonial power structures. At a time when Australia is contemplating voice, truth and treaty, Bell’s ideas cannot be ignored.  


Following the screening, director Larissa Behrendt and artist Richard Bell will join us for a Q&A session.
