NGV – for the people!

Harrell Fletcher with Jon Rubin, from the series 'Wallet Pictures', 1998

American artist Harrell Fletcher‘s September exhibition at the NGV is taking shape.  While posters, zines and videos by the artist are included, in typical Fletcher style, the experiences and opinions of local community groups will be at the fore.  Part of the exhibition will consist of a community gallery in which participants submit an item of personal importance, as well as reading materials about themselves.  Of particular interest is an NGV collection hang selected by local participants who’ll get to see exactly what they want, challenging the role of curator.
