Ben Hall


Sculptor and composer Ben Hall creates installations incorporating durational performance, existing objects, and indeterminacy. He has written for The Wire and BOMB and his practice includes curating, the world’s largest Black American spiritual music collection. As the co-owner of Russell St. Deli, Hall also works as an advocate around issues of food system management, hunger and obesity lobbying in Washington on food aid reform and increasing the minimum wage.

Ben Hall’s project involves two separate performances as well as an ongoing installation, presented as part of the Art X Detroit 2015 Visual Arts Exhibition. Windbag for Thirty-Six Sets of Lungs is a performance installation involving 36 supine volunteers whose passive breath will act as a sound generator, interacting in conjunction with a hanging sculptural installation of ferns and disco balls.
