Gordon Hall (b. 1983, Boston, MA) is a New York-based artist and writer that layers sculpture, language, and movement in performances and exhibitions. Hall’s work is driven by an interest in our bodies’ physical and social relationship to objects and space. Abstract, handmade sculptures act as instigators of open-ended questions around functionality, attraction, intimacy, and accessibility. Hall will present a new series of sculptures and accompanying performance. This is Gordon Hall’s first solo institutional exhibition.

Gordon Hall will mount a public artwork at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, NY in the fall of 2017. Hall has performed and exhibited at the Wysing Arts Centre, London (2017); Temple Contemporary, Philadelphia (2016); The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015); the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn (2014); and the Sculpture Center, Long Island City (2012).
