Richard Bell: You Can Go Now

post-image
Richard Bell is one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists. Activist, artist and political commentator, Bell uses humour, satire and word play to address issues around representation, place, identity politics, and the perceptions of Aboriginal art within a postcolonial history and framework. This major MCA exhibition reflects the artist’s early activism and strong connections with the Aboriginal community in Brisbane during the Bjelke-Petersen regime (1968–87), and his involvement in the Aboriginal community in Redfern, NSW. It also explores his relationship with key international figures of the Black Power in an ongoing collaboration with American artist Emory Douglas. https://www.mca.com.au/artists-works/exhibitions/richard-bell-you-can-go-now/
