Richard Bell. An activist masquerading as an artist.
50 years of First Nations activism in Australia seen through the lens of contemporary Australian Aboriginal artist and provocateur Richard Bell.
A look at the life and provocative work and writings of First Nations artist, Richard Bell. It reveals the ‘two Richards’ – ‘Richie’ the provocateur and enfante terrible of the art world who challenges its whiteness and the Richard who spent his childhood living in a tin shed, learnt his politics on the streets of Redfern and is known in his own community as an activist. His polemics and creative outputs provide a lens through which to consider the last 50 years of First Nations activism in Australia and its links to global protest movements.
