Since the mid-1990’s, Halley has produced site-specific installations and work for exhibitions. The Dallas Museum of Art (Texas) in 1995 commemorated the artist with a one-person museum show. Halley had transformed the museum rooms into a large and spectacular canvas. He chose to present an installation that he conceived as global; paintings, diagrams, silk screens and reliefs covered the entity’s walls. Since then, he has had several site-specific shows, among them: at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in Paris (1995), at the Museum Folkwang in Essen (1998), at Waddington Galleries in London.

Soon after, he would have a solo-exhibit at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
