In 2002, before the rise of the blogosphere and Web 2.0 platforms, Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July launched a collaborative online project that invited people all over the world to respond to creative assignments. Participants followed the artists' simple instructions and submitted documentation, or "reports," on their interpretations of each activity to be posted on the website. Examples of assignments include: "Make an audio recording of a choir," "Make a protest sign and protest," and "Take a picture of strangers holding hands." While the project concluded in 2009, the website continues to exist online as an archive.

From June 3, 2013, through early 2016, SFMOMA's building on Third Street in San Francisco will be temporarily closed for expansion construction. Selected artworks in our collection are included in a range of off-site exhibitions during this period. We regret that the remainder of the collection will not be available for study during this time.
In the meantime, we invite you to explore a wide selection of our collection online. Please note that the information presented online is subject to revision. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify artwork details.
