Taking inspiration from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy assembled by activists on the lawn of Parliament House in Canberra in 1972, Richard Bell’s Embassy is a mobile art installation that both reflects upon a pivotal moment in the Indigenous Australian land rights movement, and reveals the extent to which the struggle for self-determination continues today, in Australia and internationally.

Since its launch in 2013, Bell’s green canvas tent, with its sign declaring, “White invaders you are living on stolen land”, has been steadily touring the world—from Sydney and Brisbane to New York, Venice and Jerusalem.
