Houghton Hall hosts a major exhibition by internationally-celebrated Turner Prize-winning British Landscape artist, Richard Long. One of the most influential figures of conceptual and land art, he is part of a generation of distinguished British artists who extended the possibilities of sculpture beyond traditional materials and method. Long’s new pieces use a variety of materials, including local stone, flint from East Anglia, trees from the Estate and Cornish slate, and accompany the permanent Long sculpture, Full Moon Circle, which was commissioned for Houghton in 2003. This is Long’s largest show since his retrospective at the Tate in 2009, and will be a unique opportunity to see new site-specific works set within the historic landscape and gardens at Houghton. Find out more about the Richard Long exhibition from Houghton Hall’s website.
