Doug Hall received his B.A. in 1966 from Harvard College where he studied Anthropology. In 1969 he received his MFA from the Rinehart School of Sculpture of The Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore. In that same year he moved to San Francisco where he formed the media art collective, T.R. Uthco (1970-79), in collaboration with Jody Procter and Diane Andrews Hall. The group produced numerous works during the 1970’s. Notable among them is the videotape, The Eternal Frame, a reenactment of the assassination of John F. Kennedy done in collaboration with Ant Farm, another San Francisco based media arts collective.

Currently he is Visiting Artist at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco/Oakland where he works primarily with graduate students.
