Imagining Victory expands upon narratives and concepts developed within Bell's artistic practice that draw heavily upon the mechanisms of activism.  Hilarious and at times deeply disturbing, Bells' work attempts to dig beneath the veneer of cultural integration to expose how racism can be deeply lodged and passed on to future generations.
