Richard Bell, one of Australia’s most esteemed Indigenous artists, is set to grace Rockhampton with his largest solo exhibition yet.

Titled Bell’s Theorem, this showcase of his four-decade career will be a homecoming for the artist, born in nearby Charleville.

His artwork, recognised globally, touches on the intersection of Western, colonial, and Indigenous art, deeply rooted in activism for Aboriginal land rights.

A Celebrated Journey through Activism and Artistry

Bell’s artistry, laden with humour and poignant phrases, is a reflection of his lifelong dedication to advocating for Aboriginal land rights.

His works, ranging from paintings to thought-provoking videos, encapsulate the conflicts between diverse art forms and their reception in society.

An Exhibition Beyond Art: The Embassy

Beyond paintings, the exhibition will feature a unique piece, Embassy, inspired by the Aboriginal Tent Embassy erected at Parliament House in 1972.

This thought-provoking artwork will serve as a platform for public discourse during the exhibition, fostering dialogue on cultural and social matters.
