Floyd Hall Bio

Floyd Hall is a cultural producer and media strategist from Atlanta, Georgia. His professional work often relates to the intersection of art, media and technology as platforms. As an artist he is interested in the process of how we come to define and design ourselves, and is passionate about how history, culture and art blend together to construct narratives of place.

He has worked across the media spectrum in a variety of roles and capacities, including strategy, research and production; his current and past work spans several industries, including Gaming, Brand Management, Nonprofit Arts, Social Change, Sporting Goods, Sports Media and Luxury Lifestyle.

Floyd counts the experiences of his Atlanta upbringing, childhood summers spent in Augusta, Georgia and living in New York City as an adult as the primary influences on his life. Time spent in these locations gave him moments of clarity and insight about regional perspectives, the immigrant experience, how spaces influence patterns of life, and the imagination and ingenuity of different cultures.

In his cultural production work, he currently serves as the Interim Director of Science Gallery Atlanta, where he curates large-scale exhibitions that merge art, science, design, and technology, with an emphasis on public engagement for populations 15-25 years old. This work includes curating JUSTICE (2023), the first exhibition fully-produced by Science Gallery Atlanta, as well as co-curating HOOKED (2022), Science Gallery Atlanta’s inaugural exhibition season. HOOKED was named “Best of Atlanta” for 2022 by Atlanta Magazine.

His work also includes virtual exhibitions, including co-curating The Future Happened: Designing the Future of Music for the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), and the Flux Projects Virtual Arts Series that featured public art, performance, and narrative work in virtual spaces.

His work as a writer includes recent features for ArtsATL and Atlanta Magazine, and he has produced over 800 podcast episodes covering Art, Pop Culture, Fashion, Sports, Music, and Technology, including projects for National Public Radio (NPR) Station WABE 90.1 FM, Flux Projects, Woodruff Arts Center/High Museum, City of Atlanta and Central Atlanta Progress, and the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art.

Most recently Hall taught at Emory University in 2022 in The Center for the Study of Human Health, and has presented as a guest lecturer at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Spelman College, Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, and the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning.

Floyd is passionate about the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) disciplines and holds a BS in Mathematics from Morehouse College, a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and an MBA from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business.

In Hall’s work, he tries to find ways to center the people, places, and stories of Atlanta, and create bridges between those the narratives and the global community.
