Being in the Moment

ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long Being in the Moment marks the first collaboration between Thelma Hulbert Gallery and ARTIST ROOMS to bring the work of the renowned British sculptor and land artist, Richard Long, to East Devon.

Richard Long (b. 1945) is recognised as one of the most influential artists of our time. His work is characterised by a radical approach to nature and a unique investigation into landscape through the act of walking.

The exhibition features work that spans 40 years of Long’s career from 1966 to 2006, starting with early experiments in the south west of England.  Here began a life-long investigation into landscape as both space and material, taking Long to remote locations across the world. From photography, maps, and texts, to mark making and sculpture, this exhibition captures Long’s personal, way of being with nature and invites a moment of reflection on our own relationship with landscape and the natural world.

The exhibition is drawn from ARTIST ROOMS, a collection of modern and contemporary art jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate. The ARTIST ROOMS touring programme is delivered by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate in a partnership with Ferens Art Gallery through 2020 supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by Art Fund and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

 Culture and Climate 2020 programme

This year, against the context of THG/East Devon District Council’s commitment toDevon’s Climate Change Emergency declaration, and the University of Exeter’s declaration of an environment and climate emergency, we are delivering a series of ambitious exhibitions, projects and public programme taking place in various locations across East Devon and at the University of Exeter.

Climate change is a cultural challenge where we need to readdress how we live, and therefore art and culture plays a pivotal role in helping us understand our complicated relationship with nature. Culture can also help us identify a new way to coexist with nature, imagining possibilities or scenarios which we once did not think possible.

Public engagement programme delivered in partnership with University of Exeter, generously supported by Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and The ARTIST ROOMS touring programme, delivered by the National Galleries of Scotland and
Tate in a partnership with Ferens Art Gallery through 2020, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by Art Fund and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
