Last updated on Sunday, April 7, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - Australian Aboriginal artist and activist Richard Bell will visit Indiana University April 11 through 16.

The IU Art Museum is currently displaying his traveling solo exhibition, "Richard Bell: Uz vs. Them." It is on display until May 5.

Along with interacting with students and faculty, Bell will lead a special public tour through the exhibit at 3:30 p.m. April 14.

After the tour, world musician Adam Riviere will present a free concert at 2 p.m. in the museum's atrium.

The concert will feature Australian Aboriginal-style music featuring instruments such as the didgeridoo, clapsticks and bullroarer.

"Richard Bell: Uz vs. Them" features works by Bell whose art was an outgrowth of his activism in Aboriginal civil rights in the 1970s in Australia.
