Peter Halley is an American artist and central figure of the Neo-Conceptualist movement of the 1980s. His paintings employ the language of geometric abstraction to explore the organization of social space in the digital era. Since the 1990s, Halley has also worked extensively with wall-sized digital prints and low-relief sculpture which, along with his paintings, have been combined in site-specific installations. Halley’s work has been exhibited extensively around the world. In 2022, the Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean (Mudam), Luxembourg will present a survey of Peter Halley’s paintings from the 1980s. Recent solo exhibitions include Lever House Art Collection, New York, (2018) Schrin Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2016), the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California (2015) and the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Saint-Étienne (2014). Besides working as an artist, Halley is a writer, magazine publisher and university professor.
