Robin Bell: Democracy 2022

September 29, 2022–October 31, 2022

The Art Academy of Cincinnati commissioned Robin Bell to create a site specific installation on the Academy’s building at 1212 Jackson Street in Over-the-Rhine. Bell is an award-winning editor, video journalist, multimedia artist, and founder of Bell Visuals based in Washington, DC. Bell works on a range of creative, political, and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Bell developed a unique style of live video collage which he has performed at well-known venues, including The Kennedy Center, 9:30 Club, The Phillips Collection in Washington DC, Central Park SummerStage in NYC, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Bell was the lead video editor for PBS television show Foreign Exchange with Fareed Zakaria. He also taught video classes at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

Bell’s commitment to social change through the dissemination of information via video, sound and image is present throughout his artistic career. In 2005, he co-produced Operation Ceasefire, a seminal anti-war concert on the National Mall. His feature-length documentary, Positive Force: More Than a Witness: 30 Years of Punk Politics In Action, premiered in 2014. His incisive 2017 projection, Emoluments Welcome, on the face of the Trump Hotel in Washington DC garnered media attention from the BBC, CNN, The New York Times, L.A. Times, Huffington Post and Hyperallergic, among others.
