Richard Long International Artist talk

1.00pm Sunday 16th March

Gallery of Modern Art / Queensland Art Gallery

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear one of Britain’s most successful contemporary sculptors, Richard Long share insights into his career and recent work, in conversation with Rex Butler, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Queensland.

Recipient of the prestigious Turner Prize in 1989 for ‘the exceptional and enduring quality of his contribution to British art’, Long’s work reflects a mood that has emerged in the last twenty years which calls for a reassessment of the landscape in art. Instead of taking works from the gallery space into the environment, creating monumental objects and claiming ownership of the land, Long reverses the process – reconstructing the landscape in the gallery in the form of installation pieces which unite the inner and the outer experience.
