Richard Bell’s Embassy

Presented as part of Tarnanthi, the Art Gallery of South Australia’s acclaimed celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, Embassy by Richard Bell is inspired by the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, the protest camp set up 50 years ago on the lawns of Parliament House in Canberra. This installation, exhibited on the AGSA forecourt, will feature film screenings and talks providing a platform to challenge preconceived ideas and stereotypes about Aboriginal people, art and culture.

First appearing in Melbourne in 2013, it has since sporadically popped up across the globe, “dedicated to promoting Indigenous sovereignty on a worldwide basis.”
