Digital Aboriginal Embassy
Richard Bell’s Embassy
“Richard Bell’s Embassy (2013–ongoing) is a recreation of the original Aboriginal Tent Embassy, the protest camp set up on the lawns of Parliament House, Canberra, in 1972. Embassy is a public space for imagining and articulating alternate futures and reflecting on, or retelling, stories of oppression and displacement. The project has been exhibited at numerous international exhibitions, including the 20th Biennale of Sydney; Performa 15, New York; Jakarta Biennale; and the 57th Venice Biennale. A special Digital Aboriginal Embassy – a sovereign digital space – has been developed in conjunction with the artist’s major survey exhibition Richard Bell: You Can Go Now at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in 2021. Extending Bell’s Embassy into the digital realm, the Digital Aboriginal Embassy will critique and discuss some of the most pressing cultural issues in contemporary society.”
