Corroboree talk: Richard Bell
Hear from the artist
Acclaimed artist and provocateur Richard Bell came to national prominence when he won the 2003 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Art Prize for his painting Scientia E Metaphysica (Bell’s Theorem) which featured the text ‘Aboriginal Art – It’s a White Thing’.
As part of Corroboree Sydney 2014, Richard will discuss ideas and strategies used in his art practice to assault the many fronts of Australian racism, including in his 2009 work Pay the rent, now on display at the Gallery.
