Nigel Hall studied at the West of England College of Art, Bristol from 1960 to 1964 and at the Royal College of Art, London from 1964 to 1967. A Harkness Fellowship took him to the United States from 1967 to 1969.
Hall has had many exhibitions around the world and has been widely collected. His first tubular aluminium sculpture was made in 1970. In subsequent years he explored the ways in which tubular construction alters the viewer’s perception of space. This interest in the qualities of spatial construction was balanced by an equally strong pre-occupation with the particular sites his sculptures occupy. His recent work has been less minimal in feel, tending towards stronger, more solid forms, and a solo exhibition of his work was held at the Royal Academy in 2011. In 2017, Hall was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of the Arts, London.
