In 1990 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale and in 1991 he won the Turner Prize. His works have been exhibited widely on an international scale and are in numerous public collections. Kapoor had a large solo show at the Hayward Gallery in London in 1998 and in 2003, his work Marsyas was installed at Tate Modern in London, where it spanned the entire length of the Turbine Hall.
