Join us for a screening of You Can Go Now, a documentary that tracks 50 years of First Nations activism in Australia seen through the lens of contemporary artist and provocateur, Richard Bell.
Dr Melinda Mann, First Nations Arts Officer at RMOA, will provide an introduction to the film prior to screening. Ticket includes light refreshments.
This fascinating documentary looks at the life and provocative work and writings of First Nations artist, Richard Bell. It reveals the ‘two Richards’ – ‘Richie’ the provocateur and enfante terrible of the art world who challenges its whiteness and the Richard who spent his childhood living in a tin shed, learnt his politics on the streets of Redfern and is known in his own community as an activist. His polemics and creative outputs provide a lens through which to consider the last 50 years of First Nations activism in Australia and its links to global protest movements.
