For Come Together (NYC), Portland-based artist Harrell Fletcher invited 25 art-related people, each to invite someone to do a ten minute lecture/presentation/demonstration on a topic of his or her choosing. Participants will speak on a variety of subjects including love, growing up in Yemen, yoga, health insurance for artists, activism, cooking, and religion, among others. The all day event will result in a lively, diverse line-up of interesting participants and topics of discussion. The public is encouraged to come and stay for the whole experience, but may come and go as they wish during the eight-hour event.

Harrell Fletcher has worked collaboratively and individually on a variety of socially engaged interdisciplinary projects for over a decade. He has exhibited at SF MoMA, The Berkeley Art Museum, and Yerba Buena Center For The Arts in SF, The Drawing Center, Socrates Sculpture Park, DiverseWorks, PICA, Whitney Museum, and Signal (Malmo, Sweden).

"Ultimately, I'd like... to think of art not as discreet objects or images, but instead as a
sensibility that people can bring to all aspects of their lives." – Harrell Fletcher
