Richard Long is widely recognized as one of the most important artists to have emerged since the 1960s, along with contemporaries Robert Smithson, Robert Morris and Sol LeWitt. This book gathers together for the first time a selection of Long's statements and interviews from 1971 through 2006. Published alongside black-and-white reproductions of his works, many of the texts have been unavailable for years. Also included are an early interview from 1971, published for the first time in English, and a previously unpublished conversation with Michael Auping, Chief Curator of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. These seminal texts are invaluable for an understanding of the rich and complex implications of Long's work. Taken together, they form the best introduction available to the work of one of the most important artists working today.
