Celebrated sculptor and draughtsman, Nigel Hall has exhibited internationally and is widely collected. His first tubular aluminium sculpture was made in 1970 and in subsequent years he explored the ways in which tubular construction alters the viewer’s perception of space, in site- specific works. More recently, his sculptures have been less minimal in feel, tending towards stronger, more solid forms. A solo exhibition of his watercolours and drawings was held at the Royal Academy in 2011 as part of the Artists' Laboratory Series. Hall was elected to the Royal Academy in 2003, and last year was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of the Arts, London.
Select solo exhibitions include: Galerie Andres Thalmann, Zurich (2018); Heidelberg Sculpture Park (2017); Annely Juda Fine Art, London (2016), Galería Alvaro Alcázar, Madrid (2015), Royal Academy of Arts (2011) and Galerie Scheffel, Bad Homburg, (2010) and Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2008). Hall’s work is also held in public collections including Tate; MoMA; Kunsthaus, Zurich; Nationalgalerie, Berlin; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum,Tel Aviv Museum and Musée National d'Art Moderne, Paris.
