Harrell Fletcher has worked collaboratively and individually on a variety of socially engaged, interdisciplinary projects infused with a deceptive deadpan wit. His works have wrangled entire communities including, people in old age homes, mechanics, and internet masses, as seen in Learning to Love You More, a participatory web project that he co-created with performer/filmmaker Miranda July. Fletcher’s media ranges widely—he’s worked with video, sculpture, performance, publications, and photographs. His 2005 exhibition, The American War, originating at Artpace San Antonio, Texas, is a project in which Fletcher photographed all the images and text descriptions in The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and re-composed it in various US museums for American audiences. Jerry Saltz described the piece “as coolly factual as Hans Haacke, as eagle-eyed as Louise Lawler, as pointed as Martha Rosler, and as offhand as Nan Goldin.” Fletcher has exhibited at SFMOMA, the de Young Museum, The Drawing Center, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Smackmellon in NYC, DiverseWorks in Houston, and in the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
