Fiona Hall

b.1953 :

Fiona Hall has been selected for dOCUMENTA (13) in 2012, one of the most prestigious surveys of contemporary art, which takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany.

In the last decade, major retrospectives of Hall’s work have been held by Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane and the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide (both 2005). The survey exhibition, Fiona Hall: Force Field, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2008), also toured to City Gallery, Wellington, and Christchurch Art Gallery, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Hall has been included in many important group exhibitions and biennales over the past two decades, including Perspecta at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (1997); The Biennale of Sydney (2000 and 2010); Fieldwork: Australian Art 1968-2002 at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2002); Prism: Contemporary Australian Art at the Bridgestone Museum, Tokyo (2006); DeOverkant/Downunder, Den Haag Sculpture 2007, Netherlands (2007); The Third Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Moscow (2009).

In 1997 Hall was the recipient of the prestigious Contempora 5 Art Prize and in 1999 she was the winner of the Clemenger Art Award at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Hall’s work has been collected in depth by all the major Australian State museums, including the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide and the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane. She has also completed a number of important public commissions, for example: Folly for Mrs Macquarie, Sydney Sculpture Walk, Botanic Gardens (2000); Fern Garden, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra (1998); and Occupied Territory, commission for the opening of the Museum of Sydney (1995).
