Arnolfini - est 1961

Arnolfini invites you to a special preview of the Richard Long TIME AND SPACE exhibition.

TIME AND SPACE is a major new exhibition by Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Long. It focuses on the artists’s personal relationship to place and local materials, in particular those of Bristol and the South West where Long grew up and still lives today.

The exhibition features sculptures, photo works, text works and fingerprint drawings on driftwood that date from 1967 to the present.
