A look at the life and provocative work and writings of First Nations artist, Richard Bell, You Can Go Now reveals the ‘two Richards:’ ‘Richie’ the provocateur and enfant terrible of the art world who challenges its whiteness, and the ‘Richard’ who spent his childhood living in a tin shed, learned his politics on the streets of Redfern and is known in his own community as an activist.

Richard’s 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.

Join us for a live Zoom Q&A with artist Richard Bell after the screening.
