Housed in a tent surrounded by protest signs, Embassy is a space for activism and dialogue in support of Aboriginal land rights in Australia.
Embassy is activated through a series of public events with Richard in conversation with guest speakers and audience participants. Today’s event explores Richard Bell’s vision for a non-aligned art movement rooted in collective politics. We will be joined by members of The Otolith Group, Taring Padi and Ruangrupa among others. Visitors are encouraged to take part in these conversations and share their stories and experiences. All conversations are documented and form part of an archive that transcends national boundaries.
