Harrell Fletcher and the Emergence of Art and Social Practice

Harrell Fletcher and the Emergence of Art and Social Practice

Join us for an artist talk with Hammer Public Engagement artist Harrell Fletcher. Fletcher has worked collaboratively and individually on a variety of socially engaged, interdisciplinary projects for over a decade. His projects include The American War, a traveling exhibition, and Learning to Love You More, a participatory website and book co-created with Miranda July. Fletcher’s current project with collaborator Adam Moser will document a year at the Hammer in the vernacular of a high school yearbook. Until the end of March, when visitors come to the museum they may have their portraits taken at the Front Desk to be included in the Yearbook.

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Tickets for the Annex are required and available at the Box Office one hour before each program. Early arrival is recommended. Tickets are available one per person on a first come, first served basis. As a benefit for their support, members enjoy priority ticketing for programs in the Annex, subject to availability.

Parking is available under the museum for a flat rate of $3 after 6PM. 

The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program seeks to create a new kind of interactive museum: an artist-driven visitor engagement program that encourages contact among visitors, artists, and Museum staff, and activates spaces in imaginative ways.

The Hammer Museum’s Public Engagement program is supported through a major grant from The James Irvine Foundation.
