Comunicato stampa

Richard Long, an essential figure of the conceptual and land art movements, grew up near the River Avon in Bristol (UK) and has been using the mud from its tidal banks since the 1970s. Using simple geometric forms - lines, circles and spirals - he applies the mud to paper, panels and walls with vigorous, fluid gestures, or with carefully placed fingerprints and handprints. This exhibition includes large panels, works on paper, as well as sculpture of basalt stone from the Italian Alps.

Long (b

1945) has had retrospectives at the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Musèe d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Philadelphia Museum of Art; The National Museum of Art, Kyoto; Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Tate Britain, London; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Arnolfini, Bristol.

He represented Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1976; he was awarded the Turner Prize in 1989, and the Praemium Imperiale in Tokyo in 2009; he is Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (1990), and was made a CBE in 2013.
