Richard Bell is Kamilaroi, Ji'man, Kooma and Goreng Goreng. With more than 20 years of incendiary production behind him the 'infant terrible' of Australian Art is never lost for words or wit. After a recent survey at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane Richard is renewed with newfound vigour and with There Goes the Neighbourhood, he embarks on his latest foray into video augmenting his already energy-filled palette with new and colourful invective.
