Opening Reception Friday October 4th // 7-10 pm

Robin Bell, founder of Bell Visuals, is an award-winning editor, video journalist, and multimedia artist based in Washington, DC. Robin works on a range of creative, political and public interest projects.

Building upon his formal training as a classical printmaker, Robin 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, and the Central Park Summer Stage in NYC. He has also taught video production and editing at the Corcoran College of Art and Design.

Robin’s commitment to social change through the dissemination of information via video, sound and image is present throughout his artistic career. In 2005, Robin co-produced Operation Ceasefire, a seminal anti-war concert on the national mall. His incisive 2017 projection, Emoluments Welcome, on the face of the Trump Hotel in Washington, DC garnered media attention from the BBC, CNN, New York Times, and L.A. Times.

Robin is the director and producer of the Directed Actions Live Film Series and creates permanent public art installations in addition to his ongoing work with ephemeral media forms.
