Richard Long is known for creating multifaceted, conceptually driven works that take inspiration from his experiences with the land. Working in the tradition of the English Romantics, Long examines nature's link to the sublime and the intersection of natural forces and human concerns. In The Path Is the Place in the Line, Long assembles elements that document and reflect on a recent three-week walk he took along the Pacific Crest Trail in California's Sierra Nevada mountains. The presentation at SFMOMA includes photographs as well as stone sculptures, text works, and mud works, all characterized by a vigorous, solitary sense of quest and a reach beyond the individual.
