Exhibitions end Saturday 23 April at 5 pm.

In his insightful review of Richard Bell’s Imagining Victory exhibition at RMIT Gallery, The Age art critic Robert Nelson writes “Bell is funny in a pessimistic way, with black humour if you like. He trades in caustic counterpoint rather than conciliatory gestures.”Read more

About the exhibitions

Richard Bell: Imagining Victory

Leading Australian artist Richard Bell’s trilogy of video projects digs beneath the veneer of cultural integration to expose how racism can be deeply embedded and passed on to future generations.

Nirnay (Decision) the debut film of director Pushpa Rawat, is set on the outskirts of Delhi, and explores Pushpa’s life journey and that of her young, educated female friends. Quiet Voices installation image at RMIT Gallery by Tobias Titz, 2016.

These two works of art by Mithu Sen and Pushpa Rawat poetically address issues women face with obligation, patriarchy and the inter-generational dynamic.

Elizabeth Gower: he loves me, he loves me not

In the handwritten phrase ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ Elizabeth Gower poses the question 21,319 times symbolically representing a lifetime of re-evaluation and wavering, resilience and resolve in seeking approval from the generic male ‘he’.

In his review of  Gower’s powerful exhibition, The Age art critic Robert  Nelson writes “Gower’s critique of patriarchy emphasises both the embeddedness and the absurdity of love mixed with power.” Read more.
