Hall represented Australia at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015, and has presented numerous solo exhibitions in Australia and internationally. Major survey exhibitions of Hall’s work have been held by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; the Art Gallery of South Australia; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; and Heide Museum of Modern Art, Victoria. Hall’s work has been collected by the National Gallery of Australia and all major Australian state museums. She has also completed a number of important public commissions over the past two decades. Fiona Hall is represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney.

“As a Painting student we did six hours of life drawing per week. I’m all for drawing – that’s where you put your thoughts down. I think it hones the mind, and connects the hands with the eyes.”
