ARTIST ROOMS: Richard Long

  • 4 October 2014 — 10 January 2015 *on now

Walking repetitively in a line, making a circle of pebbles, arranging sticks in their hundreds, using mud as paint and piling up stones are just some of the many ways in which Richard Long has interacted with the landscape to mark-make, highlight, trace, document a journey or acknowledge his environment. As a student in 1967 Long completed, ‘A Line Made By Walking’ – a photograph of a field edged by a wood showing a narrow strip of grass, flattened by the action of him repeatedly walking it. This work, alongside other pieces which have a relationship to the South West, Cornish Slate Ellipse, 2009 and Three Moors, are included within this exhibition.

Richard Long, won the Turner Prize in 1989 and is one of Britain’s most significant artists. This exhibition draws from the ARTIST ROOMS collection and in addition a further two pieces have been loaned from the British Council.

ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the Art Fund, making available the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
