The Chelsea College of Art is celebrating 10 years at its fantastic (new) home adjacent to Tate Britain on Millbank in London. As part of the celebration, it is displaying the large industrial sculpture ‘Horizontal” by Nigel Hall on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground and an exhibition of the artist’s large scale drawings in the Triangle Space on the campus. The sculpture has been installed in conjunction with The Yorkshire Sculpture Park where there was a recent major retrospective of Hall’s work.
Nigel Hall is an internationally-renowned artist and there is a great link in that he was Head of Sculpture at Chelsea in the 1970’s. His work can be seen at the Providence Tower, Dallas (1989), at the Australian National Gallery, Canberra (1982), and at the entrance to the Thameslink tunnel in London, (1993).
