New York, NY –– Richard Bell: Uz vs. Them was the first traveling retrospective in the U.S. dedicated to the work of Aboriginal artist Richard Bell, one of Australia’s best-known contemporary artists and a figure of increasing international stature. Mixing humor and political commentary, Bell’s vivid and provocative paintings and videos signal an important and powerful voice in contemporary art. This retrospective was organized by Maura Reilly for the American Federation of Arts, and was accompanied by a major catalogue, with essays by the curator, artist, Eleanor Heartney, and Djon Mundine.
