Norfolk by Design is proud to open alongside one of the most important exhibitions by internationally-celebrated Turner Prize-winning British Landscape artist, Richard Long. opening on Sunday 30th April 2017 at Houghton Hall, North Norfolk.

Richard Long’s work is rooted in his deep affinity and engagement with nature, developed during solitary walks. His new pieces in the grounds of Houghton Hall using local carr stone, trees from the Estate and slate accompany the permanent Long sculpture, Full Moon Circle, which was commissioned for Houghton in 2003.

There will also be mud paintings and smaller-scale works in gallery spaces, as well as historic material relating to the artist’s career. The exhibition will be curated by Lorcan O’Neill, in association with the artist, and will be accompanied by a specially-produced catalogue.

The show EARTHSKY that opens on 30th April and runs until 26th October (selected days) will be the largest 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, alongside permanent artworks by a range of contemporary artists, including James Turrell, Zhan Wang, Jeppe Hein, Stephen Cox, Rachel Whiteread, Anya Gallaccio and Phillip King.
