The Art of John Mark Hall
January 20 – April 13, 2024
North Carolina native John Mark Hall moved to New York in 1975 after earning his bachelor’s degree in architecture from NC State. He fell into an artistic crowd that included Andy Warhol and his associates and was a print model in Paris and Milan before settling in New York in 1981 to build a career in freelance photography. Hall found commercial success photographing architecture, interiors, and gardens, doubtless influenced by his architectural education, and was published in numerous books and magazines as well as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Alongside his commercial career, Hall pursued with equal zeal a keen interest in fine art photography, his work appearing in solo and group exhibitions, and represented in museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as in private collections. This exhibition is drawn from some of Hall’s favorite works, hung in his personal studio and New York apartment.
The Art of John Mark Hall was developed by the College of Design and curated by Jennifer Peavey.
