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.

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 CartoonRegeneration: Contemporary Chinese Art from China and the US, and Film Architecture: Set Designs from Metropolis to Blade Runner.

September Press Release

Fertile Ground: María Berrío, Zoë Charlton, Joiri Minaya

August 31, 2019 – November 3, 2019

Maria Berrio, Zoe Charlton, and Joiri Minaya create multimedia collages that depict bodies enveloped by nature, often juxtaposing the garden and the wild. Fertile Ground brings their aesthetically and conceptually layered works together to explore the relationship between body and land and challenge romantic tropes with powerful personal, cultural, and political narratives. While each artist has a different reason for choosing her imagery, all engage with issues of race, class, power, ownership, and freedom.
