Ulster takes major art show

The Ulster Museum has teamed up with the Tate, the National Galleries of Scotand and the Art Fund for a spectacular contemporary art exhibition.

The ‘ARTIST ROOMS Richard Long’ exhibition opens this Friday, December 3, and will feature a range of Long’s work — a major figure in international and British art since the late 1960s.

The exhibition will explore Long’s ongoing concern with landscape and the natural environment. It also includes a new large floor-based sculpture, entitled ‘Cornish Slate Ellipse’, comprising cut slate pieces arranged in an oval shape.

Kim Mawhinney, Head of Art for National Museums Northern Ireland, said: “This new exhibition offers a fresh opportunity to connect the Ulster Museum with a wider audience, particularly young people – a key objective of the Artist Rooms exhibition tour.

We are delighted to participate as one of the venues for this national tour of modern art, made possible through one of the largest and most imaginative gifts of art ever made to museums in the UK.”
