Harrell Fletcher— Hello There Friend: Los Angeles

"Hello There Friend" is an ongoing series of works in which artist Harrell Fletcher goes on a walk in an unfamiliar place with someone. On this walk, Harrell's companions collect details of their surroundings and present them to him. The result is a conversation through the often overlooked details of an unfamiliar place.

Harrell's collaborators in Los Angeles were: Beatrice Red Star Fletcher, Kelly Bishop, and Jenni Stenson.  You can see the site specific installation at La Brea and 3rd here.

Harrell Fletcher creates participatory art projects in a variety of contexts with various people – many of them non-artists. He is an associate professor at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon where he directs the Art and Social Practice program that he founded in 2007.
