Hal Fischer (United States, b. 1950) is a gay conceptual photographer and an alumnus (BFA ’73) of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Hal Fischer Photographs: Seriality, Sexuality, Semiotics presents a first full retrospective of his work, showcasing all his photographic series, which were created in San Francisco during the late 1970s—the heyday of gay liberation.

The exhibition includes a generous selection from Fischer’s earlier work (some of it produced in Urbana), which has not been publicly displayed in decades. This earlier work contextualizes Fischer’s development as an artist, from his student days at the University of Illinois to his creative maturity in San Francisco.

Guest curated by Tim Dean, James M. Professor in English
