Richard Long has been in the vanguard of Conceptual and Land art in Britain since he created A Line Made by Walking in 1967 while still a student. This photograph of the path left by his feet in the grass, a fixed line of movement, established a precedent that art could be a journey. Through this medium of walking, time and distance became new subjects for his work. He has since expanded his walks to wilderness regions all over the world, from mountains to deserts, shorelines and rivers. Following his acclaimed exhibition ‘Earth Sky’ at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, England last year, Long’s show at Lisson Gallery will feature a new wall work in mud created specifically for the exhibition and text works that document journeys made over the past few years.
