Voices: Harrell Fletcher
Gallery 400 Lecture Room
400 South Peoria Street
For over a decade, Harrell Fletcher (born 1967) has worked collaboratively and individually on socially engaged interdisciplinary projects. Concerned with the accessibility of art, he is committed to developing systems with which all individuals regardless of backgrounds can interact with contemporary art. Past projects have included a video featuring babies encountered on the streets of New York City, lawn sculptures made in the likeness of Fletcher s neighbors, and the creation of a distinct library within an existing library. In 2002, Fletcher started Learning To Love You More, a participatory website with Miranda July.
Fletcher received an MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1994 and a certification in Ecological Horticulture from University of California, Santa Cruz in 1996. He has exhibited widely throughout the United States and Europe and has been included in exhibitions at Domaine de Kergu hennec Centre d Art, Bignan, France; In Situ, Paris; White Columns, New York; and Jack Hanley Gallery, Los Angeles. His work was included in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
