Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July

Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July


Harrell Fletcher has produced socially engaged, collaborative, and interdisciplinary projects since the early 1990s. These have ranged in approach from Corentine's Turtle (2006), made over a period of three years with the residents of a rural community in Brittany, France, to The American War (2005), for which he took his own photos at the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City that he then developed into a book. He received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA from California College of the Arts.

Filmmaker, artist, performer, and writer Miranda July had been known in avant-garde circles for a decade before her feature film Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005) won the Camera d'or at Cannes, among numerous other awards. She has produced a number of web-based projects, including 2002's Learning to Love You More and No One Belongs Here More Than You (2007), both of which exist as books. Her newest film is The Future and latest book is It Chooses You, both 2011. Miranda July grew up in Berkeley, California, and lives in Los Angeles.


Launched in 2002, Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July’s Learning to Love You More invited people all over the world to respond to seventy creative assignments set by the artists. The resulting photographs, lists, drawings, recordings, essays, and more were collected and published as a web project. In this video, the artists revisit the work in the context of its current exhibition, presented by guest curators Will Rogan and Jonn Herschend of THE THING Quarterly.
