Floyd Hall is a media strategist, cultural producer, writer and documentarian 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.
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.
He has also 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, the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, and The Creatives Project.
Floyd is a 2020 Idea Capital artist grant recipient, a Hambidge Creative Residency Fellow 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; he is a past media contributor to ArtsATL, Number, Inc, ART PAPERS, and Americans for the Arts.
