Residencies and Commissions

Professor Stuart Hall was engaged actively in the arts, and in particular, the visual arts throughout his life. He chaired the arts organisations Autograph ABP and Iniva for more than a decade. Professor Stuart Hall also worked closely with fine artists, filmmakers and photographers, writing about the visual arts and influencing public policy on the arts and education.

There is no way of overstating it: I would not do the things I do without Stuart. By the time I began making films in the 1980s Stuart was already a kind of hero. The questions he asked were a huge influence and it is still difficult to imagine a future without him.

Isaac Julien (Patron, Stuart Hall Foundation)

The Stuart Hall Foundation is developing an arts programme, which builds on Professor Stuart Hall’s immense support of visual arts. Our programme of residencies, exhibitions, commissioned artworks, publications, awards and a public programme of screenings, talks and events commence with a new residency in partnership with Iniva at the Stuart Hall Library.
