About the Artist关于艺术家
Richard Long is a British sculptor noted for his contribution to Environmental and Land Art movements. In his groundbreaking works of the late 60s, Long used photography, text, and maps to document the activity of walking through landscape, and the land itself. Other bodies of work consist of select rocks taken from the landscape, presented in specific groupings of circular or linear shapes on the floor.
Richard Long has been the subject of retrospectives at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1986); Hayward Gallery, London (1991); Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh (2007); and Tate Britain, London (2009); and numerous museum shows including: the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (1993); the Setagaya Art Museum, Tokyo (1996); the Museu Serralves, Portugal (2001); Tate St. Ives, Cornwall (2002); San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2006); and Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain de Nice (2008); Tate Britain, London (2009); Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2011); Iziko South African National Gallery, Cape Town (2011); Museum Kurhaus Kleve (2013); and Kunsthalle Hamburg (2013). Long received the Turner Prize in 1989 and the Praemium Imperiale Art Award from Japan in 2009.
