YOU CAN GO NOW examines the extraordinary life and art of contemporary First Nations artist Richard Bell. A self-proclaimed “activist masquerading as an artist,” Bell’s work speaks to the parallel story of the struggle for First Nations rights in Australia and civil rights movements around the world. From a childhood in a tin shack in rural Queensland, to the lofty halls of the Tate Modern, Bell’s success is against all the odds, and his bold, unflinching work continues to challenge the institutions of colonization in Australia at the same time as it asserts the rights and sovereignty of all First Nations people. At a time when many countries are contemplating voice, truth, and treaty, Bell’s controversial ideas cannot be ignored. Sneak preview! Artist Richard Bell in attendance on Saturday, April 15, 7:00PM for a post-screening discussion with Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Director of OSMOS. Presented with support from and in collaboration with OSMOS and EXPO CHICAGO.
