Learning to love you more

Learning to love you more

August 24 - September 10, 2007

A project by Harrell Fletcher & Miranda July
Curated by the second year students of the MA Curatorial Practice Program at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco

Emmasingel 20
5611 AZ Eindhoven

Five years ago, the artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher initiated On this website, the two artists formulate creative assignments that can be carried out by anyone and then sent back to the artists as reports. Examples of assignments are: #1 make a child's outfit in an adult size, #16 make a paper replica of your bed, #27 take a picture of the sun, #32 draw a scene from a movie that made you cry, #48 make the saddest song, or #58 record the sound that is keeping you awake at night.

All the reports (of which there are now more than five thousand) that are sent in are posted on the website. This makes an extensive archive of various artistic views and solutions to propositions from people of all ages and many places in the world. Some of the results are vulnerable and private, while others are flamboyant and indicate participants' desires to make their ideas public. Many are moving and unexpectedly associative in nature and virtually every one of the reports that touches on an instinct to visualize shared interests.

The exhibition at MU will be the most extensive presentation of works and projects to come out of the assignments. It has been curated by second year students in the Curatorial Practice Program at CCA, who were given the task of organizing the show as an assignment by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July in January 2007.
There will also be a book published by Prestel to coincide with the exhibition.
