Richard Bell

Richard Bell is one of Australia’s most important artists working today on the global stage. Born in Charleville QLD, his lifetime of activism for Aboriginal land rights informs his artmaking. Bell casts a critical eye over the racist paradoxes of Aboriginal art, utilising his canvases as ‘appropriations’ of the art canon, as well as highlighting his political heroes.

Titled after the artist’s two groundbreaking manifestos, ‘Bell’s Theorem’ will be Richard Bell’s largest solo exhibition in his home state to date, and his first in Australia after his triumphant participation in major exhibitions in Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. 


Lynette Anderson

Lyn Anderson is a Gangaalu and Bitjarra woman from the Central Queensland region. Lyn has been the Chief Executive Officer of the Helem Yumba Central Queensland Healing Centre (Rockhampton) since 2005. She has led ground-breaking change in Indigenous higher education in Central Queensland and is known for her unwavering commitment to and advocacy for Indigenous peoples’ rights to access culturally appropriate healing programs. Lyn is a long-time friend of Richard. 


Ticket options

 Tickets for this program are free, but we have introduced the option to purchase a contribution ticket at $5.00 or $10.00 for those who have capacity and wish to help cover costs of organising these programs. If you select a contribution ticket, there's no need to also select an admission ticket (selecting both will reserve two places).
