Harrell Fletcher is best known through his work with people outside the art world, where he has created art through collaboration and participation.

His first Australian project will be a collaboration with Melbourne based community groups including Arts Project Australia, CERES, Crooked Rib Art, Footscray Community Arts Centre, Grainger Museum, Hell Gallery, RISE, and two individuals, Herb Patten and Jeff Sparrow.

The participants will each reveal an aspect of contemporary and historical Melbourne, whether it is immigration, art and community, identity, urban agriculture and sustainability, urban history and politics, and even music. In addition to reflecting Melbourne’s past and present through an assortment of organisations and individuals, the project is ultimately situated in an art gallery.

In the first weekend of his Melbourne residency, Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 August, Harrell Fletcher will collaborate with the Melbourne community groups. Over the two days, members of each group, and other invited guests, will present or perform for 20 minutes. The documentation of these programs will form part of Fletcher’s exhibition at the NGV.

 This September, the National Gallery of Victoria will be the exciting hub for the latest project of US based contemporary artist Harrell Fletcher, with The sound we make together (Melbourne).

Become part of Fletcher’s relational art practice by witnessing this weekend of art making. This free event will be facilitated by Harrell Fletcher and Alex Baker.
