David Winton Bell Gallery
About the Gallery
The Bell Gallery is located on the first floor of the List Art Center, 64 College Street, in Providence, RI. Among the best venues for contemporary art in New England, the David Winton Bell Gallery presents four exhibitions a year focusing on internationally recognized artists and contemporary trends.
In addition, the Gallery mounts an annual student show, a triennial faculty exhibition, and an annual exhibition of New England artists.
Broadly concerned with the exhibition of exemplary work by artists living today, the David Winton Bell Gallery takes pride in showing artwork irrespective of media, content or subject and makes special efforts to support and show the work of emerging or under-recognized practitioners locally, nationally and internationally.
Alongside the contemporary arts, the gallery also makes use of its art historical collections, programming exhibitions on the arts and culture of the last five centuries. Recent exhibitions include solo shows by Kirsten Hassenfeld, Walid Raad, Charles Long, and Do-Ho Suh, as well as thematic group shows such as Views and Re-Views: Soviet Political Posters and Cartoon, Regeneration: Contemporary Chinese Art from China and the US, and Film Architecture: Set Designs from Metropolis to Blade Runner.

APRIL—July PRESS RELEASE
The Only Show in Town
April 6 – July 7, 2019
Snaebjornsodttir/Wilson’s socially-engaged projects explore contemporary relationships between human and non-human animals in the contexts of history, culture and the environment. Based on their work alongside avian researchers at Jacob’s Point, R.I., The Only Show in Town will comprise artworks made in response to the plight of the saltmarsh sparrow, resident in the world only along a narrow and depleted margin of the east coast of North America and marked for extinction by the year 2050.
